The Logic of Evaluation, our pilot effort, is a combination of an overview of the discipline, with the reasons for thinking that it is a discipline, with an outline of the basic concepts that work across all subdivisions of the field, ie., personnel and product evaluation (and seven more) as well as program evaluation.
The program is designed to be completed from a distance with the aid of electronic video and voice contact, electronic whiteboard, and asynchronous access to the recordings of each class.
Dr. Michael Scriven will be leading this seven-week seminar. This course is recommended for evaluators with an interest in the questions that underlie all of our practice.
