ELLIOT, Ligia Gomes. Metaevaluation: from approaches to possibilities of application. Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.73, pp.941-964. ISSN 0104-4036. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-40362011000500011.
Given the importance of their results, projects, programs and services aimed at different segments of society have been accompanied by evaluations that seek to reveal whether the scope of the desired quality was reached. However, the proper conduct of these assessments can be put in check, that is verified by metaevaluations. Metaevaluation was defined as the evaluation of an evaluation. Thus, this paper presents some approaches that represent a variety of contributing authors to conduct metaevaluation. Approaches are applicable to summative and formative metaevaluations. Some examples of metaevaluations already developed are part of the article, which highlights the possibilities of using the last version of international standards of evaluation published by the Joint Committee on Standards for Evaluations.
