Term2.png JUDGEMENT
Is an essential of evaluation that involves comparison and discrimination to arrive at knowledge of value and the relationship of things to each other, such as moral qualities, intellectual concepts, logical propositions and material facts. While occupying a space between facts and opinions, a critical element of judgment is that it is not just personal preference, but is rather considered and thoughtful. Judgment may be good or bad and evaluation promotes and incorporates skilled and justifiable judgment which can be relied upon.[1]
