Abstract : This is the second of three reports in a series of theoretical and empirical investigations of program evaluation. A questionnaire survey of 200 adult, technical training programs and their evaluations was conducted. This was followed up by site visits to 14 of them for in-depth study. The 200 programs were divided equally among Department of Defense, other federal government departments and agencies, state and local governments and agencies, and private sector commercial, business, and industrial organizations. The survey was useful in isolating areas of concern for further investigation.
