Well if the form is still open, you can just refer  straight back to the controls on your form like so:
= Forms!NameOfForm!txtEvalYear

This could go in your code or it can be the expression in the control source of your textbox in the report.

If you did want to go the OpenArgs way, you would need to combine your strings into a single string first and assign it to OpenArgs.  Then in your report you would need to add code to parse the string into its components.  The previous method I mentioned is simpler.
