To prepare:• Review the Giancola (2014) resource and read the Jayaratne (2016)
• Review the Giancola (2014) resource and read the Jayaratne (2016) and Henson (2016) articles in the Learning Resources. Reflect on the process of preparing for and developing the tools and plans needed for an effective program evaluation.
• Review the evaluation tools highlighted by this module’s Learning Resources and research other possible evaluation tools that would fit the needs of your specialization.
o Develop a draft of an evaluation tool to measure the effectiveness of your identified program using at least three of the quality indicators you identified in Part 2 of your Course Project in Module 3.
o Reflect on the measurable criteria for each indicator. What would it look like to be performing at the highest level on this indicator? What would it look like to be emerging or lacking on this indicator?
• Review the Action Plan templates in this module’s Learning Resources and research other possible templates that would fit the needs of your specialization. Develop an action plan for how to implement your program evaluation tool in the future. Include the following in your action plan and add to it as you see fit for your program:
o Program goals
o Action steps to meet those goals
o Who will complete the action steps?
o When will the action steps be completed?
o Resources need to complete the action steps
o Data collection to inform the action steps
