Editorial Reviews

Review

"A timely introduction to how evaluators go about the business of evaluation. Evaluation in Action will be useful for evaluators at all stages, experienced and new, and for students." (Carol J. Evans 2009-08-13)

"As one of the few collections of evaluator applied reasoning and practical insights, this volume is a useful resource for students, practitioners,and theorists/methodologists who want to better understand how evaluators think in practice and make decisions; how flow of workand events arising in the field shape the nature and use of evaluation theory, method, and practice." (Leigh M. Tolley and Nick L. Smith The Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation 2011-01-01)
