The Program Manager's Guide to Evaluation

Project Overview

Good program evaluations assess program performance, measure impacts on families and communities, and document our success. With this information, programs are better able to direct limited resources to where they are most needed and most effective in their communities. To help program managers fulfill these goals, the Administration for Children and Families has developed The Program Manager's Guide to Evaluation. The guide explains program evaluation - what it is, how to understand it, and how to do it. It answers your questions about evaluation and explains how to use evaluation to improve programs and benefit staff and families.
