An Evaluation Primer.
Fink, Arlene; Kosecoff, Jacqueline
Intended for those who are concerned with evaluation but do not have an extensive background, this textbook helps students, scientists, evaluators, and administrators conduct and interpret evaluations. It deals with evaluations in all social action programs--health, education, and welfare. The focus is on basic procedures, rather than on theory, politics, or ethics. Sequential chapters outline the various stages of evaluation and give actual examples, frequently in tabular or checklist format. These stages are identified as follows: (1) formulating credible questions; (2) constructing evaluation designs; (3) planning information collection, using tests, scales, observation, and questionnaires; (4) collecting evaluation information; (5) planning and conducting information analysis activities; specifically, choosing among frequently used statistical methods; (6) reporting evaluation information; and (7) scheduling, budgeting, and proposal writing. A 57-item bibliography is appended. (CP)
