6 developmental evaluation cartoons

Last week was developmental evaluation week on AEA365, so it seems like a good time to share some of my related cartoons.

Many of these were inspired by a Michael Quinn Patton talk at last year’s evaluation conference.  But there are at least two more recent ones here that you have not seen.

    Chris- The cat of accountability is hilarious! Accountbaility only when it is time for feeding.

    I have used “why developmental evaluation exists” over and over again with multiple groups and it gets a laugh every single time!

      That’s great! I really like hearing about cartoons that work well live 🙂

    As one who has long been accountable to cats, of course I love the cat of accountability. That last cartoon is one of those funny, but too close to home – too real! 🙂 Yikes! Grant cycles can be fast moving and it’s challenging to see a way out of that type of situation.
