This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the subject of evaluation as applied to literacy programs, covering evaluation theory, planning, and practice. Part I discusses questions of definition, context, objectives, and functions of evaluation and presents descriptions and analyses of evaluation paradigms and models. In Part II, the interrelated processes of evaluation planning and management are discussed, and evaluation planning and management approaches are explained and demonstrated. Parts III, IV, and V focus on the three components of the evaluation management approach discussed in Part II: management information systems (MIS), naturalistic evaluation (NE), and rationalistic evaluation (RE). Chapters in these parts cover: (1) theory, questions, and design of an MIS, NE, or RE; (2) writing a proposal for an MIS or for an evaluation study in the naturalistic or rationalistic mode; (3) tools and techniques of the three approaches; and (4) writing periodical and special reports. Part VI discusses the politics of evaluation, the need to establish evaluation standards for meta-evaluations, and the related question of evaluators' training. A glossary is appended. (YLB)

'Because of the insights offered the book under review should be compulsory reading for Ministers of Education and educational planners as well as for students of educational reform. They would find it readable, informative and disturbing. This could well become a classic account of why innovations fail. - Keith Watson, Department of Education Studies and Management, University of Reading Educational investment is now back at the top of the development agenda. The World Conference on Education for All confirmed the commitment of national governments and donors to provide opportunities for all children to enrol in school and reach minimum levels of achievement. This book takes a new look at the problems that confront politicians, planners, curriculum developers and teachers in implementing educational innovations in developing countries. The insights into theory and practice that emerge provide the intellectual yeast for the development of effective innovation strategies for the next decade.
