In contrast to common perception, evaluation and research are two distinct disciplines. Both require the application of data collection and analysis skills and centre on the shared objective of answering a question. However, the purpose of each discipline, and dissemination of the data collected, differ. Entering the evaluation profession from a research background, requires a level of adaptation to become an efficient and successful evaluator. This presentation will walk the audience through my journey from a researcher to an emerging evaluator, outline the key similarities and differences between research and evaluation, and the upskilling required to become an efficient evaluator.
