This bibliography, designed for users of the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse, provides several resources that may be consulted to gain a better understanding of evaluation research, and the different methodological approaches that can be taken in conducting such studies. Several general resources on conducting and interpreting the results of outcome and implementation evaluations are provided. Additionally, there are a number of resources devoted to an explanation of mixed-methods research, as well as performance management and its importance to evaluation research and program development. Researchers may find the reports, briefs, and articles provided in this bibliography useful in helping to plan and conduct studies and analysis of their own. Practitioners and policymakers can utilize these resources to better understand the approaches and data that come out of evaluations. This annotated bibliography is a tool to support practitioners and policymakers in making decisions about funding and collaborating with such researchers to ensure that high quality studies are being conducted and account for effective internal performance management practices.
