Featuring reader-friendly, accessible language and practical tools and concepts, this outstanding resource prepares students and professionals to become savvy consumers of evaluation reports and prudent users of evaluation consultants.

The Fourth Edition reflects the major changes in the field of community health with updated examples and references throughout.
New to this Edition:

• Move Chapter 9 into Section III Health Program Development, and revise wording to reflect that the information is part of the development phase.

• Chapter 11: include discussion of photos and video as modes of data collection.
