New Directions for Evaluation, Number 133
By George Julnes
Publisher: Wiley / Jossey-Bass
Final Release Date: March 2012
Pages: 128

Do you make evidence-based decisions when designing and conducting evaluations, and use methods validated by experience? Because of the growing importance of evidence-based decision-making for improving programs and policies, this issue examines methods selection:

  • Which is better?
  • How can one be improved?
  • Are the results of the project worth the resources expended?

and how that leads to confidence in value-based conclusions. It presents a constructive dialogue on valuing in evaluation, with the goal of developing a pragmatic approach for guiding method choice and for promoting methodology policies that support multiple approaches to valuation being employed in context-appropriate ways so as to serve the public interest.

This is the 133rd volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Evaluation , an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.
