Summary Mixed methods in evaluation have the potential to enhance the credibility of evaluation and the outcomes of evaluation. Advances in understanding mixed methods are explored in philosophical, theoretical, and methodological terms with specific illustrations of the application of these concepts in evaluation practice. Leading thinkers in the mixed methods evaluation community provide frameworks and strategies that are associated with improving the probability of reaching the goals of enhanced credibility for evaluations, the evidence they produce, and the actions taken as a results of the evaluation findings. -from back cover
