HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:
Informed consent is the voluntary agreement to participate in an evaluation. This is the process of ensuring participants are fully informed about the evaluation being conducted.
From this, participants can make a decision about their involvement in the evaluation. To be fully informed means that participants are aware of the purpose of evaluation, what the evaluation will entail, how the findings will be used, and any risks involved.
