Describe theory evaluation in terms of the theory’s capacity to help with examination, analysis, judgment, and interpretation? How does evaluation guide the ongoing development of a theory’s application, assumptions, boundaries, interpretation, and jargon?
Theory evaluation involves analyzing and collecting information about different characteristics, outcomes, and also activities. In an examination, evaluation theory plays an essential role by building an educational program that can be easily improved and accessed, thus becoming effective. Analysis needs evaluation mostly in data so that the information can be accurate understood clearly. In most cases, a decision made about quality work is mainly based on the judgment done, which is done by evaluating a person to know if one is qualified enough for a particular task. According to Stufflebeam, and Coryn (2014), different people and activities can be interpreted through evaluation theory. As a result, there will be the identification of different areas that need improvement, thus meeting the goal that is expected.
For a theory to be applied and used, evaluation is needed by giving out the principles that are required and can be implemented. In any work, the assumption is critical because it describes how a particular intervention should work, thus contributing to all the changes that are needed. It is achieved by the use of evaluation to get accurate results. Understanding boundaries is important, which is done through an evaluation guide, and there will be different principles that will be used to set boundaries (Stufflebeam & Coryn, 2014).Additionally, an evaluation guide is also used and helps in interpretation and jargon. Jargon involves terminology which is associated with a particular area or field of activities, and by evaluation guide, those terminologies will be understood and where they need to be used. The interpretation being the way an explanation is done evaluation guide is the need for more fundamental understanding and description. An example, if a person wants to translate a particular language, evaluation is needed by the interpreter for a clear understanding of the language.
