Exemplars in Evaluation Practice,edited by Jody Fitzpatrick, Melvin Mark, and Christina Christie,is designed to take readers behind the scenes of real evaluations and introduce them to the issues faced and decisions made by notable evaluators in the field.The book builds on Exemplars, a popular section in the American Journal of Evaluation (AJE), in which a well-known evaluator is interviewed about an evaluation he or she has conducted.Through a dialogue between the evaluator and the interviewer, the reader learns about the problems the evaluator faced in conducting the evaluation and the choices and compromises he or she chose to make. The book includes twelve interviews illustrating a variety of evaluation practices in different settings, along with commentary and analysis concerning what the interviews teach us about evaluation practice and ways to inform our own practice. The book is ideal for two audiences: (a) students and faculty in courses in program evaluation and (b) professionals working as program evaluators.
