Workshop on Evaluating State Title V Pilot Programs in the Northeast (October 29-31, 1974). Papers. Publication 4.
Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development, Ithaca, NY.
Four papers prepared for a training workshop sponsored by the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development constitute this document on State Title V program evaluation needs and criteria. Entitled "Why Evaluation of the State Title V Programs: An Overview from Different Perspectives", the first paper deals with seven major audiences identified as potential users of evaluation findings and details their specific evaluation needs. The second paper is titled "Evaluation of Rural Development Programs: Toward a Paradigm to Guide the Implementation and Evaluation of Rural Development Programs" and calls for a synthesis of the vast body of existing empirical and theoretical work into a unifying paradigm that will direct research and facilitate rapport among rural development practitioners. "Evaluation Needs Under Title V of the Rural Development Act of 1972" is the title of the third paper which identified two kinds of evaluation needs--(1) the intent and expectations of Congress, and (2) program effectiveness. The final paper, "The Evaluation of Development Programs", presents detailed discussion on: the nature of development, a conceptual view of development and development processes, the nature of evaluation, guidelines in the evaluation of development programs, and critical elements in the evaluation of Title V programs.
