How to Assess Program Implementation

How to Assess Program Implementation

Volume: 5
Other Titles in:
Evaluation (General)

February 1988 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume -- the revised edition of How to Measure Program Implementation -- covers the assessment of how a programme design works in practice. It reflects the recent emphasis on qualitative methods, and discusses when qualitative or quantitative methods are more appropriate. The book illustrates that the evaluator's task is not to judge the adequacy of programme implementation, but rather to document, describe, observe or assess by some other means how a programme is implemented. The text has been organized to reflect a natural and logical ordering of the steps of planning, data collection and analysis. References have been updated and examples included from education, business, social services, and other non-profit settings.

This text provides an introduction to programme implementation and evaluation. It provides enough information for students and researchers to get started with evaluating healthcare quality and implementation of evidence. It provides some basic information on methods of evaluating which could be augmented for more experienced students who may already have undertaken some evaluation in the course of their work.
