The most impressive aspect of this book is that it positions EA as an approach that perfectly fits within the current philosophical views on program evaluation…. The authors do a great job connecting these theories to practice, and provide good guidelines.
This book is focused on one very important topic in the scope of program evaluation content. It establishes the foundation for a variety of applications: impact assessment, program development, and formative evaluation. This text provides new insights and methods for conducting evaluability assessment.
The book is written in a very readable style, is well organized and referenced. I like the inclusion of case studies, guidelines for actually doing EA, and the extensive discussion of its alignment with other models of evaluation process.
One of the strengths of the book is that it provides a much needed new take on EA... Trevisan and Walser do a credible job in describing the resurgence of EA in recent years and its purposes beyond being simply an evaluator's first step before embarking on an evaluation.
Students feel comfortable with the book.
This book is the most complete and up-to-date reference manual on Evaluability Assessment. It is well written, easy to use as a methodological tool for students (and evaluators) and full of case examples.
