Term2.png VERACITY
Means truthfulness, accuracy, conveying or discerning truth. Evaluators strive to base their claims accurately and truthfully on trustworthy information obtained in light of participants' values and such there is an element of idealism in the work of evaluators. However, while evaluators to do not usually claim absolute veracity in all they perceive, claim or report, they seek to honor veracity in the context of the values they and those they serve hold.[1]
