This volume is at the core of the Program Evaluation Kit. It takes a step-by-step approach to evaluation, using non-technical language to explain procedures to novice evaluators. This edition reflects the current emphasis on continuous evaluation throughout the process of programme development. New references and the inclusion of evaluation standards are also a feature. The Evaluator's Handbook is illustrated with examples, suggestions, worksheets and sample forms for the reader's own use. At appropriate points, it refers readers to other volumes in the Kit for further information.
The heart of the Program Evaluation Kit, this volume provides a broad overview of evaluation planning and a practical guide to designing and managing programs. Learn how the field of evaluation has changed over the last ten years. This volume is concise, informative, and clearly written. Major attention is given to: establishing an evaluation's parameters; the how-to's of formative and summative evaluation; and the power of evaluation studies that combine both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Also covered are recently developed evaluation standards; and a new emphasis on ongoing program monitoring in evaluation.
