Using a Retrospective Pre-Post Questionnaire To Determine Program Impact.
Davis, Gregory A.
To document the effectiveness of instruction, a retrospective pre-post type of evaluation was used to evaluate the effectiveness of a continuing education program designed for adults involved in community economic development. At the conclusion of the learning experience, the 35 participants were asked to complete a brief questionnaire that included four demographic items and nine statements regarding program content. An analysis of participant responses revealed that the educational program increased their knowledge level with respect to each of the statements. Participants increased their understanding of the components of strategic planning as a result of the small group work, electronic slides, and written materials of the program. (SLD)
