Systems Approach to Program Evaluation: An Exploration of Alternatives for the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago.
Soong, Robert K.; And Others
As a result of a commitment to research and develop a tested program evaluation system, one group within a task force decided to interview a cross section of Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) personnel. Twenty people were interviewed from top management down to field workers. Inquiries were made about the organization, about the relationships of functions and tasks performed by the interviewee, and about administrative tools. It was found that objectives are many times not stated in measureble terms, that evaluation procedures are inadequate in terms of revealing program effectiveness, and that an information system is needed.
