Corazzini, John G.
There is a growing need for program evaluation in the human services field. Along with this is a need to assess environments in order to plan effective programs. Graduate programs are doing little to prepare students for this task. Instead of training students how to do evaluation, graduate programs stubbornly adhere to the experimental research-scientist model. Research generates further research with little effect upon clinical practice. An alternate training paradigm based on the scientist-practitioner model is necessary. If evaluators are to be successful, they need a knowledge in program evaluation, environmental assessment, political processes, organizational theory, and research design. Evaluators also need interpersonal skills. Will graduate training meet the challenge of the 70's and train students in program evaluation and environmental assessment? (Author)
