Program Evaluation In this Discussion, you and your colleagues

Program Evaluation In this Discussion, you and your colleagues identify a theory or model for evaluation and establish appropriate forms of evaluation for your programs. As noted in Week 3 of this course, a particular theory or model is not necessarily appropriate for every program. It is important to consider the specifics of the problem and the target population when making that selection. This is important to keep in mind, also, as you examine theories and models related to program evaluation. In this instance, various facets of the program such as goals and objectives should be taken into consideration. Once selected, theory can provide a framework for evaluation. In addition, there are distinct purposes for the elements of assessment addressed this week: performance measurement, monitoring, and summative evaluation. How do you foresee these being applied in your program? To prepare: Review this week’s Learning      Resources. You may wish to review the Week 3 Learning Resources as well,      which may be pertinent. Consider the various facets of your      program plan, such as your program goal(s) and objectives. Choose the evaluation theory or model      (from nursing or related fields) most appropriate to your program. Be      prepared to justify the choice of your model as it relates to your      program. Based on the program you have      developed: Create a time line for when to do       measuring, when to implement monitoring, and when to evaluate program       outcomes. What types of data would you need to       collect in order to measure performance, monitor the progress of the       program, and assess the program outcomes? By tomorrow Tuesday 1/22/19 6 pm, write a 550 words essay in APA format with a minimum of 3 references (see required reading list below). Include the level headers as numbered below: Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following: 1) Identify an evaluation theory or model that is most appropriate to support your program plan. Explain which field developed this theory or model and describe how it has been applied in fields other than nursing. Support your response with evidence from the literature (See attached file on week 3 discussion). 2) Share a time line that articulates how and when you would engage in various elements of evaluation for the program you have been developing. Be as specific as possible and provide your rationale for each decision point (no later than 2020). Required Readings Hodges, B. C., & Videto, D. M. (2011).
