I have heard “Developmental Evaluation” (DE) described many, many different ways since Michael Quinn Patton coined the term in his 2010 book of the same name.
According to some of these descriptions: it’s a way to record our journey so far; it’s about “developmental moments”; it’s rapid feedback; it’s action learning re-packaged; and/or it’s the same as formative evaluation, linked to innovative and complexity which can be used to achieve scale and so on.
