This article investigates the implications on formal evaluation theory when existing methods are viewed from an epistemic perspective. A case is made that from this approach a meaningful evaluation might be made with only a shared justification system present. Items of Truth and Belief, although of extreme interest to the parties of most evaluations, are shown to be irrelevant to the advancement of knowledge that may come about as a result of the evaluation itself. The role of this system of justification is further expanded to literally define what a knowable item within the context of an evaluation might be. These ideas are particularly explored within the contexts of emerging systems and domains of inquiry.
