Evaluation Failures

Coming Fall 2018!

Oops: Tales of Failure and Lessons Learned from Seasoned Evaluators

Edited by Kylie Hutchinson

Foreword by Michael Quinn Patton

I’m excited to be working with Sage Publishing and 23 amazing evaluators who have bravely agreed to share their stories of past failure with the evaluation community. Spread across the evaluation spectrum, these real-life missteps and outright f-ups in the field will leave you shocked, laughing, and definitely entertained. Oops is an opportunity to learn vicariously from your peers and reflect on your own practice.
