Evaluation Studies and Change: A Review of the Literature.
Gold, Robert S.; And Others
Evaluation research should be viewed as the source of knowledge on two levels: (1) how evaluation studies utilize results, and (2) how the knowledge that was evaluated is utilized. The purpose of this document is to systematically examine the literature pertinent to the utilization of evaluation results. The impetus for legitimization of evaluation in the area of health programs came about with the Great Society Programs of the 1960's and was strengthened in the 1970's by passage of legislation requiring certain proportions of federally supported program budgets to be directed towards assessment of program effectiveness. This document deals with analyzing evaluation and technical methods for implementing suggestions. Twenty-one pages of selected references make this document a complete in-hand research tool for the person involved in making authority decisions, collective decisions or optional decisions.
