The Manager's Guide to Program Evaluation

The Manager's Guide to Program Evaluation by Paul Mattessich, Ph.D., provides organizational managers and decision-makers with useful information on planning, contracting, and managing an evaluation. This is not a how-to book on conducting an evaluation. Rather, it provides guidance to managers overseeing the process.

The book provides:

  • A description of program evaluation and its benefits.
  • Explanations of the types of questions evaluations can answer and the types of information an evaluation can provide.
  • Descriptions of the different phases of an evaluation.
  • Advice on finding and working with an evaluation consultant.

This book is available from the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation for $25. For more information, visit the foundation's website at www.wilder.org/pubs/program_evaluation/index.html.
