Program Evaluation & Performance Measurement

An Introduction to Practice

Program Evaluation and Performance Measurement integrates performance measurement into evaluation practice and shows how the skills that are essential for building program evaluation expertise are also important foundations for performance measurement. The importance of sound professional judgment is highlighted throughout the book and the final chapter offers ways that evaluation professionals can develop their professional judgment. The text discusses the realities of organizational politics and incentives for managers and evaluators. It balances the importance of good evaluation methods with the resource and organizational constraints that almost always affect the choices that evaluators make as they do their work. The book does not assume a thorough understanding of research methods and design, instead guiding the reader through a systematic introduction to these topics. Nor does the book assume a knowledge of statistics, although there are some sections that do outline the role that statistics play in evaluations.

Computer Networking and Scholarly Communication in the Twenty-First-Century University

An Introduction to Isaac Breuer's Philosophy of Judaism

This book explores the various ways in which computer networking, and more specifically the Internet, is changing the practices, the structure, and the products of academic scholarship. It considers research, teaching, and dissemination of knowledge across a range of disciplines in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences in order to identify particular uses of networking that will come to constitute the academic world of the future. The contributors consider such themes as how networking and particular software environments can be used to support inquiry within research specialties and how scholars in diverse disciplines respond to the availability of new networked channels of scholarly communication. In the context of education, they argue that networking can reconfigure the process of learning, encompassing new audiences, new relationships with teachers, and new learning skills adapted for the network environment. The products of such new configurations are also discussed. The future of electronic journal publication is considered by innovators who have designed some of the first experiments in refereed electronic journal publication. Finally, the new responsibilities and roles of the academic library and academic publishers in a networked environment are debated.
