What kinds of data an evaluator may gather?
If I where to simply answer this, I would guess anything with qualitative and quantitative findings. Something that has measurable criteria and defensible metrics. I'm sure this could be defined more specifically though.
What kind of conclusions he or she may arrive?
Defensible conclusions, which requires criteria that may be definitive. Basically any conclusion specific to a question or purpose required by stakeholders but not too broad to be defined as research.
Hoping someone else jumps in here. I'm basing this off the reading mostly and trying to avoid things I think are research since we've already concluded those are very different things.
