peter: evaluator being a person or organization question - why do you want the name of the person included? We are not taking a position that the review needs to be done by a 3rd party. Putting in the company name seems sufficient.

Kerstin was not muted, Kerstin
14:33:47 [Sarah_Swierenga]
kerstin: the two aspects have a connection. for example, when testing a website, how can it be proven that it was an independent evaluation? need an independent second tester.
14:33:58 [agarrison]
Alistair: My point was for Eric to not add Shadi's summarised questions into the disposition - rather that we read all supporting emails from the list when we come to debate the 1e question which Eric has already included in the disposition.
14:34:46 [Sarah_Swierenga]
eric: there is a difference between somebody being independent and being from a third party. could be someone else from the same organization, but still independent.
14:35:05 [Sarah_Swierenga]
kerstin: doesn't agree, people from the same company could be biased.
14:35:17 [korn]
Is it a requirement of EvalTF and the charter for this work that the evaluation be independent? I thought that was out of scope of the methodology itself. So long as the independence (or lack thereof) is clear in the report, that should be enough.
14:35:20 [ericvelleman]
14:35:23 [Sarah_Swierenga]
eric: evaluators don't need to be from a third party to be independent.

shadi: recommends closing the entire set of comments.
14:44:21 [Sarah_Swierenga]
sarah: +1 for closing comments
14:45:03 [Sarah_Swierenga]
sarah: refresh your browsers on the questionnaire - several people have filled it out while we've been on the call.
14:46:00 [Sarah_Swierenga]
shadi: there are many more than two types of evaluators. we have set the scope to be broad. not in our charter to prefer one method over another.
14:46:11 [shadi]
14:46:24 [agarrison]
Putting your name is an issue of personal liability - a freelance should have protection through their own business insurances, a company as an entity should also have insurance - but putting an employees name could leave the employee personally exposed. So I don't think a person's name is necessary.
14:47:00 [Sarah_Swierenga]
