tl;dr: The decision based on criteria is the key to evaluation.
Assessment criteria help to reflect, justify and evaluate the decision. In WiQQi we develop the criteria through reflection:
- Spontaneous evaluation: As humans, we evaluate solutions. The yardstick here is our experience and the context in which a solution is embedded. The spontaneous result can be classified between the extremes "good" and "bad".
- Reflection: The reflective question of why exactly we rate something as "good" or "bad" leads to criteria. It is helpful to connect the question of what would characterize a good solution. The weight criterion can be derived from the resulting pair of terms "too heavy" and "too light".
- Measurement/testing: An objectifiable measurement can be derived for each criterion. The weight can be determined with a scale. However, it can also be determined with goal-oriented questions: "Is the weight light enough so that the solution can be carried?"
- Evaluation: In the first application - and also after 3-6 months - you can evaluate on the basis of the criteria whether the goal has been achieved, whether the solution meets the criteria used and whether the decision-making criteria were chosen correctly.
Both the criteria and the evaluation in WiQQi are always tied to the specific context. This means that they are transferable in similar contexts. The ratings can be classified for different contexts because the context is explicit. Criteria can depict both technical and ethical dimensions and thus support awareness and reflection.
