The Computer Supported Collaborative Learning Evaluand-oriented Responsive Evaluation Model (CSCL-EREM) tries to be a framework for helping in the evaluation of CSCL programs, innovations, learning and teaching resources, teaching strategies, tools, and CSCL institutional evaluations. The aim of the model is to provide clear, understandable and action-oriented guidance to CSCL practitioners involved in the evaluation of CSCL programs. It is deeply focused on the different evaluands that could be evaluated in a CSCL setting. We understand the evaluand as the programs, resources, tools, courses, teaching strategies or innovations that could be evaluated in a CSCL educational setting. The model can be framed within what Lincoln and Guba have called the “Forth generation of evaluation”. In this sense, evaluators respond to participants instead of measuring them (first generation), describing them (second generation) or judging them (third generation). According to this, the model is oriented to the activity, the uniqueness and the social plurality of the evaluand to be evaluated, promoting responsiveness to key issues and problems recognized by participants at the site.
