The Program Evaluation Tool Kit Web-Site

The Program Evaluation Tool Kit: A Blueprint for Public Health Management is a practical, step-by-step guide to evaluating programs. It is presented in a series of short modules with simple explanations and specific tools.

The Tool Kit boils the evaluation process down to five basic steps.

1. Focus the evaluation

2. Select methods

3. Develop data collection tools

4. Gather and analyze data

5. Make decisions about the program

Worksheets are included in the Tool Kit in both hard copy and electronically (on a 3.5" diskette).

The Tool Kit project was co-funded by the Ottawa-Carleton Teaching Health Unit Program and the Public Health Branch, Ontario Ministry of Health.

An order form can be obtained from Debora Dover. E-mail her your fax
