    Criminal Justice Evaluation Framework

    The Queensland Government's comprehensive Criminal Justice Evaluation Framework (CJEF) helps Queensland Government agencies review their criminal justice programs and initiatives.

    It provides Queensland Government officers with a flexible framework to plan, implement and report on criminal justice initiative evaluations and includes:

    • an outline of key evaluation questions
    • an examination of the type of data to be collected
    • information on how to manage the evaluation process.

    Read the evaluation framework:

    Three short documents have also been developed to supplement the original CJEF document. They:

    • define evaluation generally and specifically in terms of the approach identified in the document title
    • explain why evaluation is important and how the specific approach is conducted
    • provide concrete, real−world examples of the way in which the specific approach to evaluation has been used in criminal justice research
    • identify problems commonly faced by evaluators when using the specific approach and offer appropriate and accepted solutions
    • refer readers to additional resources for further information or support.
