A Model for Evaluating Educational Programs Aimed at Disadvantaged Families.
Elliott, Elizabeth
A model for evaluating an educational program for disadvantaged families (the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, EFNEP) is presented and discussed. The steps in program evaluation are given; these steps are: Rationale; Goals, Intents, Objectives; Antecedents; Transactions; and Outcome. The collection of data is described, and the use of content analysis in EFNEP is discussed. The three major elements of evaluation are given as criteria, standards, and judgments. The three types of criteria necessary for evaluating evaluation information are said to be scientific, practical and prudential. It is concluded that in order to improve the level of evaluation being done in adult education, adult educators need to evaluate their own evaluation efforts and use the results to improve future efforts. References are provided. (DB)
