Evaluation Workshop III: Program and Evaluation Planning. Participant Notebook. New Edition.
Quellmalz, Edys; Snidman, Nancy
A Center for the Study of Evaluation (CSE) evaluation framework describes the decision to be made, appropriate evaluation activity and activity description. The topic of this third CSE Evaluation Workshop is program planning, the second stage of the four stage evaluation framework. Evaluation activities should follow an orderly and logical sequence beginning with Needs Assessment, through Program Planning, Formative Evaluation and concluding with Summative Evaluation. In practice, an evaluator rarely participates in all four stages of evaluation for a single program. Practice exercises are provided for workshop participants. Evaluation questions must be identified and them means by which they will be answered must be selected. Data collection instruments should be carefully selected. Measurement instruments are chosen in accordance with a program's objectives. These may be cognitive and psychomotor or affective. Measurement devices may be tests, reports, observations, or records. Successful completion of this workshop entitles participants to conduct workshops in evaluation for other groups. (DWH)
