Evaluation of Programs.
Gold, Ben K.
Evaluation in its true concept should be a process for collecting information to make better decisions. The author discusses in detail four planning stages to evaluate programs. The first stage of the process is to ascertain the decision areas of concern. In the second stage, the evaluator must select the appropriate information-gathering instruments. In the third stage, the data must be collected and analyzed in advance of the decision maker's deadline. The final stage is to report the findings to the decision maker, in time for him to use them, and in a form he can understand. The author offers eight references on the subject of evaluation. (CA)
