A comprehensive handbook for managers, administrators, and educators in government, nonprofit, and private institutions.

The authors explain how to create an evaluation design and how to collect and analyze data in a way that will result in low-cost and successful evaluations. Among the approaches to program evaluation explored are process evaluations, continuous monitoring of program performance, and ad hoc studies of past and present programs. Annotation c.
