Looking for a practical introduction to the strategies and methods of qualitative evaluation? Ian Shaw shows how evaluation practice can utilize qualitative approaches to gain an understanding that more traditional quantitative approaches may fail to do.
Three broad sections include discussions of: the foundations of evaluation and recent trends; evaluation and action programmes; and the practice of evaluation (including design, data collection and analysis). Exercises for each chapter show students how to apply the issues, approaches and methods illustrated.
