Framing the evaluation question precedes all other design elements in an evaluation. It is also a key factor distinguishing the inquiry process of evaluation from that of research. However, the literature gives little mention to the particulars of choosing an evaluation question. This presentation identifies theoretical perspectives and technical implications involved in framing the evaluation question as well as a tool for selecting questions deliberately.
