Session: 1103 AEA 2015 in Chicago, IL "… You will finish this workshop knowing what "cost studies" all too often are, and what cost-inclusive evaluation can and should be.

Eval11 Session 707: Valuing Program Outcomes Relative to Program Costs to Improve Both: Alternative Forms of Cost-Inclusive Evaluation

This form of evaluation compares the worth of outcomes to the worth of resources expended to produce those outcomes. Alternative means of assessing the worth of both outcomes achieved and resources consumed are described in the first part of this presentation, using a few specific evaluations of human services. The second portion of this presentation uses an additional example to illustrate an evaluation framework that includes the activities in which program participants engage, and the changes that occur in participants, as well as resources used and outcomes produced
