Editorial Reviews


"This book has multiple audiences and numerous potential uses.  It can be used in graduate courses focused on student and faculty development and with cohorts and other groups where acclimation to the academy and relational learning are critical. ... The teachings of this book could serve faculty and administrators at all levels of experience.  A final audience is mentoring scholars and researchers for whom this contemporary compendium of ideas and practices can further inform professions." -Education Review

“Donaldson’s book makes an important contribution to the advancement of theory-driven evaluation, and toward improving the evaluation profession … It allows readers to not only understand how and when to use theory-driven evaluations, but also how to perform them.” -Huey T. Chen, Ph.D., The University of Alabama at Birmingham

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a class and it ended up being what I needed, namely a book about theory-driven program evaluation written by one of the most well-known practitioners. It's a fairly short book with a passable introduction and some chapters with examples. If you are studying theory-driven program evaluation, this might be a good resource. If you are a casual lay reader, you might look for something a little more complete.
