Introducing Evaluation: A Practical Introduction to Evaluation in Early Childhood Projects.
Eyken, Willem van der
This booklet, which was developed for the staff of field projects rather than for professional evaluators or researchers, provides guidelines for evaluating projects which promote activities to enhance the well-being of young children, their families, and their communities. The booklet aims to stimulate ideas and discussion, offers general principles to help in evaluation, and raises issues which encourage project personnel to seek local resources. Aspects of the evaluation process discussed include: (1) factors to consider when starting an evaluation; (2) evaluation records; (3) time and cost of evaluation; (4) evaluation instruments; (5) data analysis; and (6) factors to consider when writing the results of an evaluation. Useful resources on evaluation are listed and briefly described. (MM)
