Huey Chen brings decades of evaluation and experience to this new . I plan to use this book in my program development and evaluation course next semester. One person found this helpful.

He continues his innovative and pragmatic thinking about evaluation including identifying, constructing, and testing theories that can work, that is, practical theories. Chen has the best conceptual framework, and the quality of his writing and analysis are superb. He takes the reader through the essential steps in evaluation, with particularly valuable treatment of stakeholder involvement. Mario A. Rivera, University of New Mexico).

Within his discussion of the various evaluation types, Huey T. Chen details a range of evaluation approaches suitable for use across a program's life cycle. At the core of program evaluation is its body of concepts, theories, and methods.

In Theory-Driven Evaluations, Huey-Tsyh Chen introduces a new, comprehensive framework for program evaluation that is designed to bridge the gap between the method- and theory-oriented perspectives

In Theory-Driven Evaluations, Huey-Tsyh Chen introduces a new, comprehensive framework for program evaluation that is designed to bridge the gap between the method- and theory-oriented perspectives. He provides an intensive discussion of the nature and functions of program theory, approaches to constructing program theories, and the integration of program theory with evaluation processes. Specific types of theory-driven evaluations, as well as principles and guidelines for application are developed for meeting different policy purposes.

Practical program evaluation: Theory-driven evaluation and the integrated evaluation perspective. Practical program evaluation: Theory-driven evaluation and the integrated evaluation perspective (2nd e. When I first read the title of this book, I was not quite sure what to expect. I was initially tempted to believe that this would be one of those ordinary evaluation textbooks providing an overview of some of today’s most commonly used evalu-ation approaches and methods. However, my first impression quickly dissipated once I looked more carefully at both the author’s name and the book subtitle.

The Second Edition of Practical Program Evaluation shows readers how to systematically identify stakeholders’ needs in order to select the evaluation options best suited to meet those needs. Within his discussion of the various evaluation types, Huey T. Chen details a range of evaluation approaches suitable for use across a program’s life cycle. At the core of program evaluation is its body of concepts, theories, and methods. This revised edition provides an overview of these, and includes expanded coverage of both introductory and more cutting-edge techniques within six new chapters. Illustrated throughout with real-world examples that bring the material to life, the Second Edition provides many new tools to enrich the evaluator’s toolbox. 

 

"In this eminently readable book, Chen presents a strong matrix framework for conceptualizing a full range of evaluation strategies and approaches… The writing is exceptionally clear, accessible to novice evaluators, and, because it is fair-minded and principled, of relevance to seasoned evaluators as well."  ―Jennifer Greene, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign  

 

"Professor Chen′s Second Edition of Practical Program Evaluation sets a new standard for providing a variety of systematic frameworks for conducting high quality program evaluations. The readers will come away with a detailed understanding of both conventional and cutting-edge approaches. It is a must-read for practicing program evaluators, evaluation scholars, and students of evaluation." ―Stewart I. Donaldson, Claremont Graduate University

 

"Chen brings decades of evaluation and experience to this new edition. He continues his innovative and pragmatic thinking about evaluation, including identifying, constructing, and testing theories that can work in practice. Dr. Chen shows how to blend formative and summative evaluation, process and outcome evaluation, theory and action, and much more." ―R. Burke Johnson, University of South Alabama

 

"Dr. Chen’s latest effort offers evaluators a thoughtful expansion on the topics addressed in Practical Program Evaluation (2005) in terms of program theory, logic modeling, and his evaluation typology. New chapters gleaned from the field reveal solution sets for overcoming challenges in a variety of contexts while still balancing scientific and stakeholder needs. This new work provides a solid foundation for the further development of an evaluator’s acumen." ―Gregg M. Gascon, Ohio State University

 

"Chen has the best conceptual framework, and the quality of his writing and analysis are superb. He takes the reader through the essential steps in evaluation, with particularly valuable treatment of stakeholder involvement." ―Mario A. Rivera, University of New Mexico

Comments:

Helo
I have been reading this for school and so far it is more of an introductory course into program evaluation and what it encompasses. I am coming from a background of very limited knowledge for program assessments and evaluation so this book has been helpful. The terminology is easy to follow and can be in some sense rhetorical. However, being an introductory course this may be expected.

Thank you for this book. Thank you so much.

Fast shipping needed for college class. Very informational, difficult read
Mpapa
Great book. The chapter overviewing the action and change models is outstanding and completely justifies the cost of the book. I plan to use this book in my program development and evaluation course next semester.

This item was shipped as described and was required for a college course.
Fomand
The content is comprehensive in guiding evaluators for their professional tasks.

This book is terrible. Very redundant.
Chen's Theory-Driven Evaluation is very informative, insightful, and easy to follow. Many relevant examples are included to help deeper understanding of complex subject matter in the realm of Public Health and effective intervention programs. Researchers, students, and practitioners alike that are passionate about implementing positive change programs to sustain the well-being of local communities will benefit greatly from this manuscript.
