Abstract

The Collaborative Evaluation Fellows Project was designed to build the evaluation capacity of the American Cancer Society and to produce evaluations that would be used in decision making on the local to national levels. Is this kind of use occurring and has use become a means of institutionalizing evaluation? Data from site visits to six regional offices suggest some use of findings occurring, while other data clearly indicate that an evaluation ethos and evaluation practice are both taking hold within the organization.
