Summary

Social work practice is founded upon the linkage between the objectives and goals of clients, programs, and agencies, and the evaluation process is critical for making sure those links are strong. Building on its earlier editions with seven new chapters and complete revisions of the others, as well as a strong online companion website prescence, this text is more relevant and user-friendly than ever. It provides a straightforward introduction to program evaluation couched within thequantitative and qualitative traditions - the two approaches most commonly used to generate relevant social work knowledge. The result gives students a sound conceptual understanding of how the ideas of evaluation can be used in the delivery of day-to-day services they will be offering your clients,as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to demonstrate accountability.
