JIRA doesn't have the ability to slice data that way. I only know how to do this using the add-on Script Runner, using a purpose-built JQL function. I am not sure about this anymore, since that add-on doesn't appear free now.

issueFunction in parentsOf("issuetype != Sub-Task")

With JQL Tricks plugin (commercial), you can do it like this:

issue not in hasSubtasks("Evaluation") and project = XYZ
