Sequential chapters outline the various stages of evaluation and give actual examples, frequently in tabular or checklist format. These stages are identified as follows: (1) formulating credible questions; (2) constructing evaluation designs; (3) planning information collection, using tests, scales, observation, and questionnaires; (4) collecting evaluation information; (5) planning and conducting information analysis activities; specifically, choosing among frequently used statistical methods; (6) reporting evaluation information; and (7) scheduling, budgeting, and proposal writing.
