Somehow my question got lost. Curses to Microsoft Outlook!
It went something like this:
In their Foreward, Guba and Lincoln suggest that following the Fourth Generation Evaluation model can result in producing an "agenda for negotiation" (13) rather than conventional, objective conclusions and claims. My question: How do we apply this negotiation piece to our own data reporting/interpreting project this semester? Is negotiation limited to our "stakeholder circle" (151) or, if we're shooting for some of the goals of the 4th Gen. model, would negotiation/interaction need to include the students who gave us our data in the first place? I know we'll be involved in daily (weekly) negotiations with one another regarding parameters, definitions, and interpretations, but as G and L stress the vulnerability and risk-taking parts of evaluation, I'm wondering if it's even possible to commit to this model without consulting the students (a.k.a. "the vulnerable").
