I believe that evaluation is a beautiful practice. Of course, I base this assessment on my own definition and sense of beauty. The nature of “beauty” has been the focus of many philosophical discourses over millennia. You may want to challenge such an assessment of our profession and practice (let us set aside for the moment the notion of evaluation as a transdiscipline), and the criteria on which I have based my assessment. You may want to use another adjective – perhaps “useful”, or “noble”.
