Qualitative Evaluation | Social Research Methods
Three broad sections include discussions of: the foundations of evaluation and recent trends; evaluation and action programmes; and the practice of evaluation (including design, data collection and analysis). Exercises for each chapter show students how to apply the issues, approaches and methods illustrated.
`Ian Shaw has written an exceptional new book on the topic of qualitative evaluation... The outgrowth of this work is that both professional researchers and practicing clinicians will be able to use qualitative evaluation in ways they never dreamed of' - International Social Work
`There are few up-to-date introductions to qualitative evaluation, and none that adopts the catholic approach to be found here. As a result, this book will take up an important position in the field' - British Educational Research Journal
