A Guide for Evaluation Decision Makers
Alkin's book is specifically designed for administrators who commission evaluations or who are responsible for seeing that evaluations are performed. It is a practical, easy-to-read guide which combines concrete cases with workbook exercises to show exactly how to make an evaluation. The volume is light on technical jargon and heavy on common sense advice, and forms a natural accompaniment to the popular Program Evaluation Kit (SAGE 1978).
