Annotation: DESIGNED TO PRESENT NOTABLE, PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED WRITING ON TOPICS OF CURRENT CONCERN TO THE EVALUATION COMMUNITY, THIS VOLUME FOCUSES ON QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN EVALUATION RESEARCH.
Abstract: WITH THE AWARENESS THAT EVALUATION HAS OUTCOMES AT BOTH THE POLICYMAKING AND SERVICE DELIVERY LEVELS, THIS VOLUME IS DESIGNED FOR USE BY INSTRUCTORS AND STUDENTS OF EVALUATION, RESEARCHERS, PRACTITIONERS, POLICYMAKERS, AND PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS. PAPERS ARE LARGELY SELECTED FROM THOSE DELIVERED AT THE PREVIOUS ANNUAL MEETING OF THE EVALUATION RESEARCH SOCIETY. THESE WORKS EXAMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF VARIOUS METHODS AND METHODOLOGICAL STANCES FOR CONDUCTING EVALUATION RESEARCH, THE ROLE OF QUALITATIVE METHODS IN EVALUATION RESEARCH, THE LEGITIMACY OF THE QUANTITATIVE-EXPERIMENTAL PARADIGM FOR PROGRAM EVALUATION, AND A CASE STUDY OF THE RECONCILIATION OF QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE ANALYSES. OTHER PAPERS DISCUSS A POSSIBLE RAPPROCHEMENT OF QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE METHODOLOGIES, PHOTOGRAPHY IN AN EPISTEMOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK, ETHNOGRAPHIC CONTRIBUTIONS TO EVALUATION RESEARCH, AND THE LINKAGE BETWEEN IMPACT AND PROCESS ANALYSES IN TRANSITIONAL WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAM SUPPORTED WORK FOR GROUPS WHO USUALLY EXPERIENCE GREAT DIFFICULTY IN GETTING OR KEEPING REGULAR JOBS. NOTES AND REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED, AND BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF THE CONTRIBUTORS ARE PROVIDED. SEE ALSO NCJ 64099-64105.
