Essentially it's more of a philosophical question. Most who analyze affirmative action look at it as Strong preferential, Weak preferential, and strong evaluative. I am just not quite sure what the strong evaluative aspect is.

Here's an educated guess.
Strong evaluative affirmative action may be that a committee or individual who's responsible for this policy studies and evaluates minority candidates very carefully to see if they can possibly be an asset to the program.
