Employing both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, empowerment evaluation is the use of evaluation concepts, techniques, and findings to foster improvement and self-determination. David M. Fetterman explores its background and theory and goes on to present the three steps of empowerment evaluation: establishing a mission statement about a program; taking stock; and charting a course for the future, while using case studies to highlight these steps in practice. Foundations of Empowerment Evaluation also covers standards for using EE; caveats and concerns; how to distinguish EE from other approaches, using the Internet as a tool and finally looks at the strengths, limitations, and conditions of empowerment evaluation.

"Fetterman offers down-to-earth, clearly written descriptions and explanations of an approach that reconciles the contingencies of organizational practice with the standards and principles of evaluation accountability. He adroitly bridges the gap between the subjectivity of self-evaluation and the objectivity of external evaluation by showing with case examples and detailed methods, forms, and narrative why empowerment evaluation extends the reach of standard evaluation practice."(Dennis Mithaug)
"Professor Fetterman’s book should be ready by all practicing evaluators and scholars in evaluation. It will very likely open the minds of traditional evaluators to new functions and roles of evaluation."(Madhabi Chatterji)
