Recently, two theoretical frameworks have been offered – Daigneault and Jacob's participatory evaluation measurement index and Champagne and Smits’ model of practical participatory evaluation. In this case report, we apply these frameworks to test alignment with practitioner experience and to examine the degree to which they contribute to the understanding of the case.”
