  Annotation: This second part of a two-part presentation provides examples pertinent to the evaluation of programs for victims of domestic violence, along with practical suggestions for conducting such evaluations.
  Abstract: The presenters provide tips and suggestions for developing evaluation goals and objectives, for developing measurements, and for the analysis of the findings. They also discuss some of the complex issues involved in sharing the results of an evaluation, as well as in negotiating and interpreting findings. Other issues discussed are safety considerations, problems in evaluating services to under-served populations (minorities and other marginalized groups), human subject issues, when an outside evaluator should be used, and guidelines for selecting an outside evaluator. The final issue addressed is collaboration between researchers and service providers. This requires ongoing negotiation, beginning with the conceptualization of the evaluation and continuing until all phases of the evaluation are completed. The service provider must feel comfortable with the evaluation goals and techniques so far as their impact on clients is concerned. The evaluator, on the other hand, must be confident that the evaluation goals can be achieved and that the techniques used provide the data and information needed to reach the evaluation goals. For the first part of this two-part presentation, see NCJ-184567
