Evaluation Theory Models and Applications PDF 14

Evaluation is a systematic process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting information to assess the value, merit, or worth of a program, project, policy, or intervention. Evaluation can be used for various purposes, such as improving the quality and effectiveness of programs, informing decision-making and policy-making, enhancing accountability and transparency, and advancing knowledge and theory in a field. Evaluation can also be conducted from different perspectives, using different methods, models, and approaches.

One of the most comprehensive and authoritative books on evaluation theory, models, and applications is the second edition of Evaluation Theory, Models, and Applications by Daniel L. Stufflebeam and Chris L. S. Coryn. This book provides an overview of the evaluation field and its standards, a critical analysis of 23 evaluation approaches and models, a detailed description of selected evaluation approaches, a practical guide to evaluation tasks, procedures, and tools, and a discussion of metaevaluation and institutionalizing evaluation. The book is intended for students, researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders who want to learn more about the theory and practice of evaluation.

The book is divided into six parts:

  • Part One: Fundamentals of Evaluation. This part introduces the definition, history, types, purposes, uses, users, standards, ethics, and challenges of evaluation.

  • Part Two: An Evaluation of Evaluation Approaches and Models. This part presents a framework for assessing evaluation approaches and models based on their alignment with the evaluation standards and their suitability for different evaluation situations. It also categorizes 23 evaluation approaches and models into four groups: pseudoevaluations, quasi-evaluation studies, improvement-oriented and accountability-oriented evaluation approaches, and social agenda and advocacy evaluation approaches.

  • Part Three: Explication of Selected Evaluation Approaches. This part explains in depth four evaluation approaches that represent different paradigms and perspectives: experimental and quasi-experimental design evaluations, case study evaluations, Daniel L. Stufflebeam's CIPP Model for Evaluation (an improvement-oriented approach), Michael Scriven's Consumer-Oriented Evaluation (an accountability-oriented approach), Robert Stake's Responsive/Stakeholder-Centered Evaluation Approach (a social agenda approach), and Michael Patton's Utilization-Focused Evaluation Approach (an advocacy approach).

  • Part Four: Evaluation Tasks, Procedures, and Tools. This part covers the practical aspects of conducting evaluations, such as identifying and assessing evaluation opportunities, designing evaluations, budgeting evaluations, contracting evaluations, collecting evaluative information, analyzing and synthesizing information, and communicating evaluation findings.

  • Part Five: Metavaluation and Institutionalizing/Mainstreaming Evaluation. This part discusses the importance of evaluating evaluations (metaevaluation) to ensure their quality and utility. It also addresses the issue of institutionalizing or mainstreaming evaluation in organizations to foster a culture of evaluation.

  • Part Six: Glossary. This part provides definitions of key terms related to evaluation theory and practice.

The book is written in a clear and accessible style that balances theory and practice. It includes learning objectives, review questions, student exercises, key readings, tables, figures, examples, case studies, glossary terms, references, index, instructor support materials, online resources, etc. The book is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate courses on evaluation theory and methods. It is also a valuable reference for evaluation professionals and stakeholders who want to enhance their knowledge and skills in conducting or using evaluations.
