Orientation Materials for Portfolio and Panel Review Evaluation of Community-Based Youth at Risk Programs [Project Portfolio Design and] Portfolio Panel Review Guide.
Peterson, Ken; And Others
Two documents are presented that were used to organize, create, and review portfolio evaluations of 93 community-based social action programs sponsored by the National 4-H, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Kellogg Foundation. The first document, "Project Portfolio Design," was used to direct local program leaders to assemble portfolios. The second document, "Portfolio Panel Review Guide," was used to direct 45 panelists in their review of the submitted portfolios 5 months later. The Youth at Risk programs provide school-age child care and education, reading and science literacy programs, and coalitions for high-risk youth. The combination of 93 programs makes an interesting evaluation problem because of the range of designs and variety of approaches. Portfolios permit local projects to tell their stories by including materials and evidence in a compact format. As a second part of the evaluation design, review panels provide the judgment necessary to use the information in the portfolios. (SLD)
