Program Evaluation and Performance Measurement offers a conceptual and practical introduction to program evaluation and performance measurement for public and non-profit organizations. James C. McDavid, Irene Huse, and Laura R.L. Hawthorn discuss topics in a detailed fashion, making it a useful guide for practitioners who are constructing and implementing performance measurement systems, as well as for students. Woven into the chapters is the performance management cycle in organizations, which includes: strategic planning and resource allocation; program and policy design; implementation and management; and the assessment and reporting of results.
The Third Edition has been revised to highlight and integrate the current economic, political, and socio-demographic context within which evaluators are expected to work, and includes new exemplars including the evaluation of body-worn police cameras.
“Finally, a text that successfully brings together quantitative and qualitative methods for program evaluation.” — Kerry Freedman
“This book provides a good balance between the topics of measurement and program evaluation, coupled with ample real-world examples of application. It breaks down the materials and it is easy to follow, which provided my students with main points related to measurement and program evaluation. In addition, this book emphasizes both quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods. The discussion questions and cases are good and can be useful in class and for homework assignments.” — Mariya Yukhymenko
