Abstract 1 Title: The framework of the Mexican policy evaluation to achieve its effectiveness
Presentation Abstract 1:

This proposal highlights the importance of reviewing the design of policy evaluation (framework) because this formulation stage has an effect on its effectiveness. Ideally, coherence in evaluation design should strike a balance between gathering and obtaining relevant information on the one hand and enabling the evaluated to carry out their tasks on the other. That is to say, the more ambiguous and complex the design of policy evaluation, the less effective the evaluation.

In this context, the proposal explores either this factor facilitate the use of evaluation findings or jeopardize the decision-making process to lead changes on programmes. Through a brief and practical way to acknowledge the theory of evaluation utilization from a different perspective the proposal concludes that the design of policy evaluation is essential to explain its effectiveness.
