Evaluating Social Work Services and Program - 05 edition

Evaluating Social Work Services and Program (ISBN10: 0205415016; ISBN13: 9780205415014)
ISBN13: 978-0205415014
ISBN10: 0205415016

Summary: Program Evaluation uses a practical, reader-friendly approach to de-mystify evaluation research, clarifying evaluation's relationship to social work practice and providing the knowledge necessary to conduct it.

This book assumes that students have studied traditional research methods and basic statistics or are currently studying them. It contains all necessary definitions and brief explanations of essential research terminology and concepts. However, it r
elates them directly to their usage in evaluation research, which is often quite diffent from the way they are used in traditional research.

Features
  • Well organized with excellent flow from chapter to chapter, Program Evaluation does not read like a research methods book, making it a text students will want to read and learn from.
  • Contains two chapters describing the history of evaluation and the forces that produced it as well as traditional methods for evaluating programs and services (Chs. 2 & 3).
  • Two chapters on single system research provide the needed knowledge to design and conduct studies (Chs. 4 & 5).
  • Presents students with situations in which practical and ethical issues conflict and no easy solution presents itself. The "ideal world" is presented, but it is balanced with practical realities such as the need for funding and program continuation.
