Contemporary Approaches to Program Evaluation and Their Implications for Evaluating Programs for Disadvantaged Adults.
Steele, Sara M.
Designed as a reference to contemporary evaluation approaches, this monograph brings together a variety of old and new frameworks and ideas about evaluation and shows how they are related to one another. Section I provides an overview of the contemporary evaluation scene. Section III presents summaries of over 50 approaches to evaluation from a variety of social fields, some preliminary sketches and others extensively developed. The middle section provides guidelines on how to sort these out--how to choose and use evaluation approaches. Appendixes give condensed contemporary program evaluation approaches, evaluation approaches categorized by field of origin, and a try at developing a taxonomy of program evaluation. There is an extensive bibliography, an index of authors, and an index of approaches. (Author)
