`a very good book indeed... I have read and re-read many parts of the text... Wit, thoughtfulness, graceful style, and practical advice are well mixed... a welcome contribution to the maturing of evaluation into an interdisciplinary field whose function in describing and understanding social programs is as important as its role in explaining or judging those programs' -- Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis
The book that has been a resource and training tool for countless applied researchers, evaluators, and graduate students has been completely revised with hundreds of new examples and stories illuminating all aspects of qualitative inquiry. Patton has created the most comprehensive, systematic and up-to-date review of qualitative methods available. Patton has retained and expanded upon the Exhibits that highlight and summarize major issues and guidelines, the summative sections, tables, and figures as well as the sage advice of the Sufi Master, Halcolm. This revision will help readers integrate and make sense of the great volume of qualitative works published in the past decade.
Once again setting the standard for the field, the Second Edition of Qualitative Evaluation Methods reflects the tremendous explosion of interest in qualitative methods over the past decade. Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition includes three new chapters on Theoretic Foundations of Qualitative Inquiry, Particularly Appropriate Qualitative Applications and Quality and Credibility of Qualitative Analysis. Patton has also a completely updated literature review and citations section to reflect the mass of new research in qualitative methods in the last ten years. It will be of interest to anyone involved in evaluation of any kind.
A quantitative evaluation methodology to study the cost sensitivities and engineering uncertainties of advanced energy conversion systems. Results of the application of the methodology to evaluate the ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) technology are reported. Capital cost and bus-bar cost of electricity are estimated for optimal complete systems. Sensitivities of these cost estimates to perturbations in various significant design parameters are derived. The effect of major variations in design concepts on the total system cost is also discussed.
Quantitative Evaluation of Fire and EMS Mobilization Times presents comprehensive empirical data on fire emergency and EMS call processing and turnout times, and aims to improve the operational benchmarks of NFPA peer consensus standards through a close examination of real-world data. The book also identifies and analyzes the elements that can influence EMS mobilization response times. Quantitative Evaluation of Fire and EMS Mobilization Times is intended for practitioners as a tool for analyzing fire emergency response times and developing methods for improving them. Researchers working in a related field will also find the book valuable.
All papers were peer reviewed. These proceedings provide the latest research and development papers in Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) and its applications to flaw detection, material properties, and structural reliability. The papers are prepared by a line-up of internationally known researchers and are reviewed by qualified scientists. Papers cover recent developments in essentially all measuring techniques (ultrasonic, electromagnetic, x-rays, thermal, acoustic emission, etc.) and their applications to flaw detection and structural reliability.
