Program: Part 1 – Evaluability Assessment Assignment
Instructions
Overview
This assignment
requires you to develop an evaluability assessment for your chosen problem
(examples listed below) using Vito & Higgins evaluability assessment
approach in Chapter 4. You will identify and describe the program theory by
outlining the components of the program and determining which of them is
measurable. You must cover the following in the paper: identify the purpose and
scope of the assessment, develop a program template that describes the goals
and objectives of the program, and create a short list of questions (5–10) for
a focus group or an interview that will help narrow down the scope of the
program. You must discuss each theory that supports different aspects of the
program if multiple theories are being used. You do not need to address how the
program will be analyzed; this will be covered in the Program Impact Paper. You
must follow the outline recommended in Chapter 4 of Vito & Higgins.
