Alternative approaches to program evaluation


You have submitted the document outlining the direction of your program evaluation and the logic model. Now that you have studied the alternative approaches to program evaluation and their relative strengths and weaknesses, describe how you will use one or more of the various approaches in your proposal.

For each strategy,

  • Describe it specifically so that it can be easily differentiated from other strategies in the chapter that describes the general approach.
  • Discuss the rationale for that strategy and how it will fit into the context of the evaluation.
  • Address how this strategy is designed to complement other strategies and how it serves to enhance the validity of other data that are going to be collected.

Your project paper should be in Microsoft Word 2000 or higher. Remember to follow the current edition of APA format. Your paper should be double-spaced and in 12 point font. It should not exceed five pages and should include an additional page that lists your citations.

Every week, your assignment should be submitted using proper APA format. A cover page will not be required. However, the first page of the assignment should include a title and proper headings for sections of your response. In-text citations should follow APA guidelines, and you should include a Reference list as a separate page with entries that match in-text citations. You may include an Appendix if you have additional information (e.g., assessment instruments, tables/figures, other supporting documentation).

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
