Abstract:

"A Practical Guide to Evaluation presents the mechanisms and processes of evaluation with an eye toward illustrating the impact of evaluation on the long-term success of agencies. The book utilizes a circular six-step Evaluation Decison-Making Model to discuss every stage of the evaluation process, highlighting the model's applicability to different types of evaluations in different professional settings. The new edition of the book has been reformatted as a workbook with tear-out checklists, exercises, and decision-making tasks for each chapter, so students and practitioners will have an opportunity to practice skills taught. Unlike many evaluation manuals, which focus purely on theory, A Practical Guide to Evaluation uses literature reviews and logic models, as well as complete case studies, to help social service practitioners connect theory to planning and evaluation."--Back cover.
