Evaluating social programs and problems : visions for the new millennium by Stewart I Donaldson( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's evaluators are being challenged to help design and evaluate social programs intended to prevent and ameliorate complex social problems in a variety of settings, including schools, communities, and not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. Drawing upon the knowledge and experience of world-renowned evaluators, the goal of this new book is to provide the most up-to-date theorizing about how to practice evaluation in the new millennium. It features specific examples of evaluations of social programs and problems, including the strengths and weaknesses of the most popular and promising evaluation approaches, to help readers determine when particular methods are likely to be most effective. As such, it is the most comprehensive volume available on modern theories of evaluation practice. Evaluating Social Programs and Problems presents diverse, cutting-edge perspectives articulated by prominent evaluators and evaluation theorists on topics including, but not limited to: *Michael Scriven on evaluation as a trans-discipline; *Joseph S. Wholey on results-oriented management; *David Fetterman on empowerment evaluation; *Yvonna S. Lincoln on fourth-generation evaluation; *Donna M. Mertens on inclusive evaluation; *Stewart I. Donaldson on theory-driven evaluation; and *Melvin M. Mark on an integrated view of diverse visions for evaluation. Evaluating Social Programs and Problems is a valuable resource and should be considered required reading for practicing evaluators, evaluators-in-training, scholars and teachers of evaluation and research methods, and other professionals interested in improving social problem-solving efforts in the new millennium

Intended to serve as an introduction to a useful method of composition evaluation, this handbook provides a comprehensive checklist of many relevant topics and issues. The handbook begins with a discussion of the basic concepts of evaluation. The next chapter provides an overview of the components of a writing program as a background and context for comparing and contrasting composition program features. The handbook then describes the following 11 components of an evaluation of a composition program: (1) student writing performance, (2) student attitudes and beliefs about writing, (3) other student indicators, (4) the process of teaching writing, (5) teacher attitudes and beliefs about writing, (6) teacher professional activities and leadership roles, (7) training activities, (8) program administration, (9) costs, (10) side effects, and (11) replications. This is followed by a brief discussion of how to fit the components into an overall evaluation composition instruction. The final chapter contains a glossary of evaluation and writing terms, and annotated references for further reading. (Hod)

Reforming the evaluation of research( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of New Directions for Evaluation, devoted to efforts at improving the evaluation of research, represents the theoretical, methodological, and practice perspectives of some of the world's leading scholars who have devoted themselves to improving how research is evaluated. These contributions come from authors currently or recently working in Australia, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The chapters in this volume offer what we hope will be powerful and promising insights about evaluations of research, not just for the scientists, technologists, and scholars who have been or will be subjected to an assessment of their own research, but also for research managers and policy makers."--BOOK JACKET
