To prepare for this weeks section of Assignment 4: Keep your own program in mind as your review the information presented in this weeks Learning Resources. Develop an evaluation plan that includes goals, objectives, and activities. Consider what type of data will be needed. Review your visual representation of your program plan design (Week 6 [see attached file named Assignment 2]) and incorporate your evaluation plan. Revise your Gantt chart (Week 6 [see attached file named Assignment 2]) to include your evaluation plan. The full Assignment 4 is due by Wednesday 1/30/19 before midnight of this week. Instructions have been provided in previous weeks to help you prepare. By Day 3 To complete: Write a 3- to 5-page paper in APA format with a minimum of 6 scholarly references.
