How do I provide a good evaluation point for something I agree with?

At the beginning of their course most A-level students fall into the trap of thinking a good evaluation point is one which completely contradicts or negates their previous argument. That is not the case. If your point of analysis was, for example, that a government measure will reduce unemployment, your evaluation does not have to destroy that argument and ‘prove’ to the examiner that that is not the case and that in fact unemployment will not fall.

Instead consider commenting on the time needed before any results are shown. You may also wish to consider whether the government policy was the most appropriate for the expected result, or whether other policies would have been faster, cheaper and more effective. Furthermore, you may wish to consider the opportunity cost of the said government measure, and comment on whether the funds engaged could have been better spent elsewhere. If answering a question on a specific economy, consider how realistic it is that the given economy with the given economic reality would act in the way proposed in your analysis point.
