What are the arguments for and against using professional judgment as the means for evaluating programs


Submit a minimum two-page paper which answers the following question:

Consider the program (or type of program) that you intend to evaluate for your final project.

  1. Create a logic model based on information presented in Module 2: m2-readings-d.parr_.docx
  2. Your project paper should be in Microsoft Word 2000 or higher. Remember to follow the most current APA style standards. 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.
