This volume presents the first comprehensive introduction to Results Mapping, an innovative, story-based approach for assessing the worth of social, health, and educational programs. Unlike most forms of evaluation that are number driven, results mapping is story-based. Program staff are challenged to relate their most successful work with clients in structured formats that, in turn, are translated into outcome scores and related program measures. An invaluable tool for professionals, researchers and students who need to demonstrate outcomes for complex and difficult to evaluate programs.
