Document Number: 5767The Evaluation Exchange: Evaluating Family Involvement Programs - This issue of the Harvard periodical contains articles designed to push those in the family involvement field to consider three questions: (1) How can research and evaluation be aligned with practice knowledge to gain a deeper understanding of the contextual variables that influence family involvement outcomes? (2) How can a continuous system of programs serving children and families from birth to adolescence be created? (3) What can research and evaluation tell us about where and when in children’s lives the most promising investments should be made? The issue is broken into eight sections, Theory & Practice, Promising Practices , Spotlight, Questions & Answers, Beyond Basic Training, Evaluations to Watch, Ask the Expert, and New & Noteworthy.
