How to communicate evaluation findings
Lynn Lyons Morris, Carol Taylor Fitz-Gibbon, Marie E. Freeman, University of California, Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation
Sage Publications, 1987 - Education - 92 pages
Evaluation is only of use if its results are communicated to users and stakeholders -- this volume demonstrates how this is done. The authors argue that communication needs to take place throughout the evaluation process. The importance of maintaining a variety of channels of formal and informal reporting mechanisms is shown. The need to tailor the medium and the message for intended audiences and uses is also stressed. How to Communicate Evaluation Findings is a substantially revised version of How to Present an Evaluation Report in the original Kit. The book offers practical tips on how to communicate effectively, on using graphs and tables, and on presenting evaluation reports. Appropriate worksheets are provided.
