Early Childhood Program Evaluations: A Decision-Maker’s Guide

This guide prepares decision makers to interpret program evaluations using five key questions drawn from rigorous evaluation research. Policymakers and civic leaders need to know whether a given early childhood program is effective and deserves a significant investment of funds. By reading this report from the National Forum on Early Childhood Policy and Programs, decision makers will gain the independent knowledge necessary to evaluate the quality and relevance of any evidence provided in program reports.
