What's in This Guide
This guide was developed as a resource for evaluators, whether external, third-party researchers, or program administrators and other staff who are considering conducting their own internal evaluation. Some of the evaluations highlighted here were carried out by external evaluators, while others were conducted by program staff or the staff of a parent organization. In all cases, the research was undertaken by experienced professionals, and this publication is aimed primarily at readers who are familiar with basic evaluation practices. For readers who are less familiar with evaluation, a glossary of common terms is available on page 65.
