The Revised Program Evaluation Standards and Their Correlation with the Evaluation Use Literature.
Various strategies for optimizing the use of program evaluation information are recommended, based on a thorough evaluation of the literature. The recently revised "Program Evaluation Standards" (Joint Committee, 1994) are then reviewed point by point as regards sensitivity to these recommendations. It appears that the new standards generally incorporate what the literature suggests should be regarded as "best practice." The revised standards place the onus of considerable responsibility for promoting use on the shoulders of the evaluators themselves. (Contains 153 references.) (Author/SLD)
