Abstract: The volume mainly concentrates on presenting the issues connected with conducting evaluative studies from the practical point of view. The focus is, among other things, on practical aspects of the realization of evaluative studies of the projects financed from the European resources in the Silesian voivodship. The authors of the volume wanted to show the issues concerning the realization of studies aiming at a diagnosis of the effects of the external interference undertaken within the frame of the projects realized in the Silesian voivodship. The studies, the results of which, encouraged us to present this publication were conducted in a qualitative way, by means of a questionnaire containing dispositions to questions in over ninety districts and counties of the Silesian voivodship. Thanks to it, the material gathered also allowed for some basic quantitative analyses. The questionnaire givers, the role of which was performed by our students, asked the representatives of self‑government institutions in districts and counties, responsible for the realization of European projects in a given unit, to make information on not only the projects as such, but above all their evaluation available. The initial questionnaire questions concerned the project itself and its classification as regards the programme (“Human Capital” Operational Programme, Regional Operational Programme of the Silesian Voivodship, as well as a priority, action or sub‑action). The next questions concerned ways of evaluating the project. Here the questions asked for a definition of evaluation used for the purposes of its realization, the subjects taking part in the evaluative study, the criteria of selecting the evaluators, aims of the evaluative study, the type of the study in terms of its subject, aim, time, nature of evaluator, evaluative criteria, methods and techniques used in the study, the final report as well as its structure, and, last but not least, recommendations deriving from the evaluative report. This way, an interesting study material was gathered, the analysis of which allowed for making a few conclusions worth presenting. The first chapter of the volume presents basic information on the usage of European resources in Poland, putting an emphasis on the Silesian Voivodship. A lot of attention was paid to the Regional Operational Programme of the Silesian Voivodship, within the scope of which the broadest stream of European funds comes to the regions. The second chapter, apart from raising strictly methodological issues and problems directly resulting from the study realization, presents a characteristic of different elements of the evaluations such as types of evaluations, their aims, functions, criteria and final reports, as well as how the evaluation is really perceived, and what role it is ascribed. In the third chapter, on the other hand, three selected examples of the so called good evaluative practices, namely evaluative studies that can be considered as model and worth imitating were described. These were the evaluations of the following projects: „Droga do przyszłości szkół w Przystajni”, „Szansa dla Ciebie”, and „Skorzystaj z szansy”. The book closes with a chapter devoted to the Generator of the Application Forms of the „Human Capital” Operational Programme, that is a programme that serves the application for European resources and their obtainment. We would like our publication to become useful both for the students already starting to deepen their knowledge on evaluative studies, and practitioners who, realizing various programmes and projects financed (or co‑financed) by the European resources, have to know how or prepare and conduct the evaluative studies or evaluate if the evaluation conducted by external experts was realized according to the principles of research reliability.
