In this Thematic Unit, students will study concepts-definitions of program evaluation, the differences between research and evaluation and theoretical orientations of program evaluation through a historical review. They will, also, study alternative approaches/models that can be used in the evaluation of programs, including program modeling or the technique of structured hierarchical decomposition, the capabilities-weaknesses of these approaches, issues related to resistance and conflict resolution in evaluation, as well as the collection of evaluation information through the design, sampling and costs in relation to the data sources and methods, analysis and interpretation.
