The Handbook is an essential reference and map for any serious evaluation practitioner, scholar, and student anywhere in the world.\"--Michael Quinn Patton, author of Utilization-focused evaluation. In this comprehensive handbook, an examination of the complexities of contemporary evaluation contributes to the ongoing dialogue that arises in professional efforts to evaluate people-related programs, policies, and practices. The SAGE Handbook of evaluation is a unique and authoritative resource consisting of 25 chapters covering a range of evaluation theories and techniques in a single, accessible volume. With contributions from world-leading figures in their fields overseen by an eminent international editorial board, this handbook is an extensive and user-friendly resource organized in four coherent sections: role and purpose of evaluation in society, evaluation as a social practice, the practice of evaluation, and domains of evaluation practice. The SAGE Handbook of evaluation is written for practicing evaluators, academics, advanced postgraduate students, and evaluation clients and offers a definitive, benchmark statement on evaluation theory and practice for the first decades of the 21st century.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/3755157710<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Reference works<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Textbooks (form)<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3755157710#CreativeWork\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The Sage handbook of evaluation : policies, programs and practices<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"65468804<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/65468804#PublicationEvent\/london_thousand_oaks_calif_sage_2006<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3755157710#Agent\/sage<\/a>> ; # SAGE<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/enhancements\/fy0701\/2005935244-t.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/methods.sagepub.com\/book\/the-sage-handbook-of-evaluation<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781848608078<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780761973058<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\numbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBA636537<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/65468804<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
