Demonstrating Results


Item Details

"According to New Planning for Results trainer Rubin, outcome measurement lets libraries evaluate how they affect their users' quality of life. This latest addition to the PLA-sponsored Results Series uses familiar task breakdowns along with key terms in a step-by-step, service-oriented format so that readers can master the outcome measurement process as they enhance library programs using evaluation techniques." "Using the 14 step-by-step customizable workforms, libraries can gather and interpret statistically accurate data to demonstrate outcomes and attract funding. Applying these concepts in examples and in two running case studies - an Internet class for seniors and a tutoring program for teen mothers - brings the model to life. Six "tool kits" include tips on creating evaluations, coding data, and selecting a sample."--BOOK JACKET.
