Week 10: Designing an Evaluation Approach

As the focus on evaluation continues from last week, you now delve deeper into designing evaluation for your program. As you proceed through this week, think about how your overall program design informs the design of your evaluation approach. Recognizing that evaluation is applied through the different stages in the life of a program, what do you think this means for your program?

This week you examine an evaluation plan for a program in the literature and discuss insights with your colleagues in a Discussion. You develop an evaluation approach that is suitable for your program, completing and submitting Assignment 4 this week. You also prepare to conclude your Practicum Experience (next week).
Learning Objectives

Discussion: Evaluation in Programs

As a leader in the field, it is essential to learn from the successes and challenges that others have encountered. Particularly with the design and evaluation of programs, many expensive and difficult lessons have already been discovered through previous endeavors.

For this Discussion, you review the literature and analyze a program’s evaluation plan. As you do this, consider what can be surmised from this example and the others shared by your colleagues to guide the development of your program’s evaluation plan.

To prepare:

Search the literature and select an article of interest that includes a program evaluation. You may also select an article that has been presented in this course.
Consider the following:
Was the evaluation plan appropriate to the design of the program?
Identify the goals and objectives of the evaluation plan.
What were the activities related to this evaluation?
Based upon the data, how valid are the outcomes?

By Day 3

Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:

Assess the appropriateness of the evaluation plan and share other information or insights as it relates to the evaluation approach.
Include a full citation of your selected article.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses.

Assignment 4: Evaluation Planning

Evaluation Plan

A plan for evaluation should be correlated well with the specific program for which it has been developed. As you continue to work on Assignment 4, it is important to bear in mind that an evaluation plan is distinct from–yet aligned with–the program plan, and contains its own goals and objectives.

This week you integrate the knowledge and discernment you have developed to formulate a plan for how evaluation could be an integral part of your program.

To prepare for this week’s section of Assignment 4:

  • Keep your own program in mind as your review the information presented in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Develop an evaluation plan that includes goals, objectives, and activities. Consider what type of data will be needed.
  • Review your visual representation of your program plan design (Week 6), and incorporate your evaluation plan.
  • Revise your Gantt chart (Week 6) to include your evaluation plan.

The full Assignment 4 is due by Day 7 of this week. Instructions have been provided in previous weeks to help you prepare.

By Day 7

To complete:

Write a 3- to 5-page paper that addresses the following:

Evaluation Methods (developed in Week 9)

  • Identify an evaluation theory or model that is aligned to your program goal(s) and objectives.
  • Exhibit a performance measurement, monitoring, and evaluation time line that:
    • Demonstrates the appropriate use of performance measurement, monitoring, and summative evaluation
    • Distinguishes between the long-term effects of impact evaluation versus short and intermediate health outcomes as a result of the implementation of the program

Evaluation Plan (developed this week)

  • Develop an evaluation plan that includes goals, objectives, and activities. Specify the type of data needed.
  • Add your evaluation plan to the visual representation (e.g., table or graph) of your program plan design.
  • Add time line information for the evaluation plan to your Gantt chart.
