An Eclectic Approach to the Evaluation of Training Programs for Title XX.
Froman, Robin D.
Title XX funds are used at the state level to develop, expand and improve the training of social service workers. Evaluation of programs receiving this funding must provide information on the effectiveness of the program in meeting specifically stated objectives, a complete description of the program for the purpose of replication, and recommendations for program improvement. Two core evaluation procedures are the development and use of behavioral objectives or goal statements and the development of a detailed description or chronicle of all procedures used or events occurring during the course of the grant period. Additional evaluation procedures used either to supplement or validate the core procedures are criterion referenced pre- and post-testing, self reporting of skills, use of attitude change scales, behavioral observation and participants' subjective ratings. Recommendations for the format in summarizing the collected information are given. Questionnaires are appended. (BH)
