Assessment of Change Agent Behavior: Design Strategies and Limitations.
Gouvier, William Drew
Relationships between change agent performance and outcome success within the context of group behavioral programs are identified. The evaluation of either the ultimate effectiveness, or the specific change processes in a group program often requires assessing the behavior of the change agents, as well as that of the target population. Five design strategies for conducting the assessment of change agents are presented, and limitations on the usefulness of each are noted. It is suggested that a greater amount of useful information can be gathered at a minimum of additional response cost by nesting a simple interaction scoring system into the appropriate categories of a multiple outcome assessment device.
