Evaluator's Handbook. CSE Program Evaluation Kit, Volume 1. Second Edition.
Herman, Joan L.; Morris, Lynn Lyons; Fitz-Gibbon, Carol Taylor
The "CSE Program Evaluation Kit" is a series of nine books intended to assist people conducting program evaluations. This volume, the first in the kit, provides an overview of evaluation activities and a directory to the rest of the kit. Chapter 1 explicates the evaluation perspective that grounds the kit and describes the role of evaluation in common phases of program development. It also discusses things to consider when trying to establish the parameters of an evaluation. Chapter 2 presents specific procedural phases for conducting formative or summative evaluations. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 contain specific guides for accomplishing three general types of studies: a formative evaluation, a standard summative evaluation, and a small experiment. The handbook concludes with a master index to topics discussed throughout the kit. Two appendixes contain a sample evaluation report and a table of t-values. (Contains five tables, two figures, and five charts.) (SLD)
