The Encyclopedia of Evaluation is an authoritative, first-of-its-kind who, what, where, why, and how of the field of evaluation. Covering professional practice as well as academia, this volume chronicles the development of the field - its history, key figures, theories, approaches, and goals. From the leading publisher in the field of evaluation, this work is a must-have for all social science libraries, departments that offer courses in evaluation, and students and professional evaluators around the world.
The entries in this encyclopedia capture the essence of evaluation as a practice (methods, techniques, roles, people), as a profession (professional obligations, shared knowledge, ethical imperatives, events, places), and as a discipline (theories and models of evaluation, ontological and epistemological issues).

In this new encyclopedia, veteran professor of education Sandra Mathison leads a team of 108 contributing experts in documenting the development of the field of evaluation and in defining its fundamental concepts and methods. . . . This groundbreaking guide should serve both students and professionals in evaluation. -- John R.M. Lawrence * Lawrence Looks at Books *
"The helpful readers' guide provides an overview of the types of information included. Concepts, ethics, approaches and models, organizations, and qualitative and quantitative methods are some of the areas that are covered. The encyclopedia will be most useful in academic libraries and institutions with evaluation programs." -- Linda Scarth
