Within the field of Evaluation, performance measurement is fast becoming a prevalent framework or set of tools to use in implementation analysis, formative and summative evaluations, and even needs assessments. Many of the measurement techniques that evaluators employ overlap with those of performance management, so evaluators are able to learn and use this framework quite readily. Recent approaches have acknowledged limitations in the implemented meaurement systems and developed new practice-based strategies for effective ongoing measurement of program activities and use in guiding management. Significantly, these new strategies are being developed both in the United States and internationally and need to be brought together for collaborative learning and dissemination to practitioners and scholars. Julnes's text will serve as a vehicle for the dissemination of these new performance measurement strategies. The book will have a combination of conceptual and practical applications with an emphasis on cutting-edge practices in the US and abroad. The text boasts two unique features: first, though most of the chapters deal with performance measurement in the US., the text represents the most notable examples of performance measurement in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Eastern Europe; second, the book will be unique in the way that its structure will support the integration of theory and practice, with linked chapters that introduce the literature on key topics, present case studies with "lessons learned," and then provide clear guidance for practical "how-to/skill building."

This active learning guide is written for students and designed as a "toolbox" or "handbook" to learning in the clinical rotation. It presents a series of student exercises and journaling experiences within an active and inquiring learning model. Self-directed, collaborative learning built upon each student's diverse strengths, abilities, and experience is the focus of this approach. Through this active learning process, students become ore independent and gain confidence in their ability to think, ask, and reflect about, as well as plan, analyze, and apply their experiences. As an active learning guide, this book has three primary goals: to emphasize the need to integrate theoretical classroom learning with the skills acquired in the clinical setting, to encourage the student to fully participate in the educational process, and to provide a practical guide to the triumphs and pitfalls along the way.(clinical rotation, skills, procedures, nursing fundamentals, practice, med-surg, medical-surgical, analyze, judgement)
