Abstract

Validation of tools to support decisions on infrastructures evolutions should account for the context of their future use. Thus, the role of evaluation constructs is very important, because it identifies the operational context of a power grid. This paper reviews relevant evaluation methods that focus on partnership, collaborative planning, tool-supported collaborative planning, and individual decisions. We propose a structure called ‘Evaluation Continuum’ that embraces the methods. This paper aims to provide readers with a way to account for constructs relevant for validating tools. The outlined ‘Evaluation continuum’ can be used for planning gaming simulations and stakeholder workshops. It can be also useful for devising questionnaires for such sessions.
