Using a Project Portfolio: Empowerment Evaluation for Model Demonstration Projects.
Baggett, David
For model postsecondary demonstration projects serving individuals with disabilities, a portfolio of project activities may serve as a method for program evaluation, program replication, and program planning. Using a portfolio for collecting, describing, and documenting a project's successes, efforts, and failures enables project staff to take stock of their accomplishments to date, track their progress towards reaching goals, and foster an awareness of the fullness of their efforts. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of a portfolio of activities can involve staff in conducting their own evaluations, which apply a basic concept of empowerment evaluation. Portfolio components should include a summary of the portfolio's format and purpose, a narrative of the grant, grant personnel, a copy of the original grant, a list of the project's goals and objectives, formal and informal program evaluations, consumer needs assessments, research activities, outreach activities, network activities, professional meetings and activities, dissemination activities, and planning activities. The benefits of using portfolios are discussed. (Contains 11 references.) (JDD)
