It is important to recognize the critical role that evaluation can play in enhancing the programs and services we provide. Evaluation can be a very powerful tool at the disposal of the practitioner. It provides a basis or rationale for reinforcing or reshaping and redefining the programs for which we are accountable. And like any tool, we are uncomfortable in using it until we become familiar with its functions, its strengths, and its limitations.
