“This book represents a significant achievement. The authors have succeeded in creating a book that can be used in a wide variety of locations and by a large community of evaluation practitioners.”
“This book is exceptional and unique in the way that it combines foundational knowledge from social sciences with theory and methods that are specific to evaluation.”
“The book represents a very good and timely contribution worth having on an evaluator’s shelf, especially if you work in the international development arena.”
“Best text I’ve found for introducing evaluation design AND critical thinking, especially as it relates to current and generally accepted practice, as well as the crucial grounding in real world concerns.”
Excellent course book for public health students who wish to understand how to develop and conduct evaluation in real world settings.
I am using this book in my summer evaluation class and come to find that Real World means third world and thus the books relevance is limited. The book is also over-complicated for students. Too much detail and as an evaluator just too messily written, difficult to figure what is going on. Seeking a different text for the fall.
I am using McDavid, Huse and Hawthorn, Program Evaluation and Performance Measurement (Sage) instead.
This text provides a comprehensive introduction to undertaking social programme and service evaluations on a tight budget or on a smaller scale.
excellent and I will share with colleagues on the new MSc in International Midwifery that starts in 2013
I wanted to increase the evaluation element in the research methods module as many students may go into job roles where they are more likely to be asked to evaluate projects and events. This is a very accessible and straightforward book.
This book should be on every researchers bookshelf. It a second edition, suggesting already that it is popular. The authors take the reader through every stage of the evaluation process addressing the issues in a clear, concise and understandable way.
This is a great well laid out book which is easy to navigate around. There are wide range of case studies from small to large scale projects. Excellent examples of practical advice for managing budget, time scales and how to apply theory into practice. It would be suitable for community specialist pratitioners or managment leadership/ organisational development at level 7.
