Summary "Building Evaluation Capacity provides 72 activities for learning how to design and conduct evaluation studies. Each activity includes an overview, instructional objectives, time estimates, materials needed, handouts, and procedures for effectively using the activity - whether there are a few participants or an unlimited number in small groups. To help the reader locate specific kinds of activities, the book includes a chart that names the activity, the time needed to implement the activity, and whether background information or knowledge is required prior to implementing the activity. The book also includes several strategies for forming groups and a glossary of instructional strategies." "This book is ideal as a text for evaluation courses throughout the social sciences. Students, instructors, trainers, consultants, and managers will all find countless ideas and strategies that facilitate learning."--Jacket
