Archived Information


You may find the following updated bibliography helpful as you map out your initial evaluation design and data analysis plans. It provides references on the nature of evaluation and how to plan them, how to collect, analyze and interpret evaluation data, and how to report and use evaluation findings. There are many more sources published on qualitative evaluation than on quantitative evaluation and few good references, in hard copy, on evaluating higher education technology programs. This bibliography reflects these limitations.
