This is an implicit proposition in literature that program evaluators can be caught somewhere between the analytical and objective world of researchers concerned with theory, research design and data analysis on one hand and the world of the practitioner who is included with the requirements of the client group and service delivery on the other hand. This is far from the "sterile" world of the researcher. How would you bridge the gap between these two significant contributors to knowledge, or would you choose one over the other? Be as creative as possible however keep in mind your responses must be realistic as this condition reflects the reality of the program evaluator. Be certain to incorporate the literature (program evaluation and any other) into your responses as you present your rationale. Support your answer with suitable reasoning.
