Abstract It is common practice to associate recommendations for program improvement with evaluation reports. In this article, several classes of recommendations are identified, and aspects of one class are explored in some detail. Consideration is given to certain logical, methodological, and practical issues relating to the derivation of recommendations that specify remedial actions. It is argued that formulating sets of such recommendations generally takes place in environments characterized by indeterminacy, a point that is not sufficiently recognized. The conclusion is reached that evaluation and radical program redesign probably ought to be kept separate.
