Legislative program evaluation (LPE) allows legislatures to ensure that the programs they establish or fund are operating efficiently, effectively, and economically. Unlike evaluations that have knowledge development as their primary purposes, LPE is utilization-driven because its customer-the legislature-demands useful, timely knowledge in plain English. LPEs focus on utilization creates some unique conditions, methods, processes, and products that add overall value to the field of program evaluation.This volume of New Directions for Evaluation gives an overview of the dynamic field of LPE and reveals what evaluators can learn from LPEs innovative work.

Chapters explore LPEs creation of databases using new technologies- techniques for communicating evaluation findings to the client- use of convergent methods to strengthen findings in complex study areas- and application of out-of-the-box approaches to evaluation, such as systems modeling.This is the 81st issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Evaluation.
