Abstract

What gets measured gets done. If you don’t measure results, you can’t tell success from failure. If you can’t see success, you can’t reward it. If you can’t reward success, you’re probably rewarding failure. If you can’t see success, you can’t learn from it. If you can’t recognize failure, you can’t correct it. If you can demonstrate results, you can win public support. Osborne & Gaebler (1993) Focus questions What is program evaluation? Why evaluate programs? What are the main types of program evaluation? What are the main approaches to program evaluation? What steps are involved in program evaluation?
