Collaborative Evaluations: Step-by-Step, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide for evaluators who aim to master collaborative practice. Liliana Rodríguez-Campos and Rigoberto Rincones-Gómez present their Model for Collaborative Evaluations (MCE) with its six major components: identify the situation, clarify the expectations, establish a collective commitment, ensure open communication, encourage effective practices, and follow specific guidelines.

Fully updated to reflect the state-of-the-art in the field, each core chapter addresses one component of the model, providing step-by-step guidance, as well as helpful tips for successful application. To further demonstrate the utility of the MCE, this new edition includes recurring vignettes about several evaluators and clients, illustrating frequent questions and specific challenges that arise when evaluators take a collaborative approach. Drawing on a wide range of collaborative evaluations conducted in the business, nonprofit, and education sectors, this precise and easy-to-understand guide is ideal for students and practitioners who want to use its tools immediately.
