Summary
"Professional accountability is central to both public and private sectors. In Evaluation Practice, DePoy and Gilson bridge the apparent gap between practice and research to present a logical, systematic model to guide all professional thinking and action within the context of everyday professional life. Their framework embraces diverse theories, action, and sets of evidence from a range of professional and disciplinary perspectives."--BOOK JACKET
