A Model for Developing Program Evaluations to Influence Policy.
Conner, Ross F.
A model for the evaluator-policy maker relationship is presented for use by those responsible for conducting program evaluations which ultimately affect policy decisions. In this collegial model, power is invested equally in relevant research and program personnel. Characteristics of the model are described in terms of: (1) early contact with the program; (2) willingness to learn about the program; (3) a consultive approach to evaluation design; (4) regular contact with the program; and (5) a formal mechanism for program personnel feedback. An application of this model is provided through a description of the American Bar Association BASICS Program. (Author/HLM)
