What is strong evaluative affirmative action?
I'm not familiar with the term, "evaluative affirmative action," nor did Google have any sites on it. Please clarify your question, and we'll try to help you.
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.
