Four Approaches to Building Extension Program Evaluation Capacity
Franz, Nancy; Archibald, Thomas
Journal of Extension, v56 n4 Article 4TOT5 Aug 2018
Extension educators are expected to more fully evaluate programs. In response, evaluation capacity building (ECB) is a necessary component of Extension educator professional development. One size rarely fits all; ECB more likely succeeds if it is well aligned with the educator's evaluation needs and the type of educational effort. Four approaches to Extension work have been documented--service, facilitation, content transmission, and transformative education. These approaches require different evaluation measures and therefore different forms of ECB.
