This handbook is designed to help beginning evaluators of teacher recruitment programs. It addresses the information and assessment needs of teacher recruitment programs.

After presenting tips for getting started, the handbook offers eight steps to successful program evaluation, which include: (1) understanding the purpose of program evaluation; (2) identifying audiences for the evaluation; (3) planning for evaluation resources and costs; (4) identifying evaluation questions; (5) selecting methods for data collection/sample surveys; (6) analyzing and interpreting the data; (7) drawing conclusions and making recommendations; and (8) reporting the evaluation results. The handbook also includes mini-case studies of program evaluation. Four appendixes offer: more tips from practitioners, a glossary of terms, resources for program evaluation, and a reader response form. (SM)
