The Practice of Evaluation: Partnership Approaches for Community Change provides foundational content on evaluation concepts, approaches, and methods, with an emphasis on the use of evaluation and partnership approaches to effect change. Real examples in every chapter illustrate key ideas and concepts "in action" on topics such as organizational development, capacity building, program improvement, and advocacy. Editors Ryan P. Kilmer and James R. Cook, and the chapter authors, highlight pragmatic approaches to evaluation that balance the needs of stakeholders in an ethical way, to provide useful, usable, and actionable guidance for program improvement.
