Bhola, H. S.
Addressed to professionals involved in program evaluation, this working paper covers various aspects of evaluation planning, including the following: planning as a sociotechnical process, steps in evaluation planning, program planning and implementation versus evaluation planning and implementation, the literacy system and its subsystems, and some evaluation questions for use in evaluating literacy programs. Discussed next are situation-specific evaluation agendas and approaches to evaluating literacy programs. Following an examination of management information systems, various aspects of managing evaluation systems are covered, including developing evaluation subsystems, staffing and recruitment, staff development, linkage with support institutions, decision networks and nodes, intersystem communication, program development, resources and control, and monitoring as a management tool. Provided next are strategies for making the evaluation findings more probable and for limiting some of the politics of evaluation. (MN)
