Participatory evaluation (PE) is frequently used to assess community plans and actions. But how is a PE process designed and carried out? Which methodological elements differentiate PE from other assessment practices? And what kind of tools and instruments are used? This article attempts to answer these questions though a review of the most recent literature and guidebooks on the EP methodology. Some methodological reflections on the EP process conducted in three community plans are given and described. In this paper we analyse the most relevant methodological aspects observed during entry into the community, context, the formation of the steering group, the application of participatory techniques and Dynamics to evaluate community actions, their multiplication, and the evaluation and closure of the three processes of EP (5). Results allow identifying relevant methodological contributions to the implementation of future processes of participatory Evaluation in community Settings, as the key stakeholders to the process of entry into the community, some elements to consider in order encouraging participation, and the role of the professional evaluators team ​
