Program Evaluation Assignment 2
The program Evaluation Assignments will focus on ethical and/or practical concerns as well as provide examples of program evaluation research.
Address the following:
1. What is the NEP/SEP research question? Provide the direct quote-properly cited (reference APA Publication Manual for guidance with citation format). Do not quote from the Abstract. Why is the question being asked?
2. Briefly describe the sample in terms of size, important characteristics, location, and time.
3. What are the primary dependent and independent variables?
4. Describe how the data was collected.
5. What is the most important finding? Was the research question answered?
Second, based on the section in the Program evaluation text, Chapter 13 on “Culturally Sensitive Evaluation Practice” discuss the implications of race (and other marginalized populations) as well as other socioeconomic factors for program evaluation in general and for this particular study. You should draw on ideas from the supplemental readings but not summarize them. This latter part should be 40-50% of the paper. The two parts should be about an equal length.
By the Program Evaluation Assignment 2 due date, submit a one-page document (single-spaced, 1” margins) that clearly and concisely summarizes the above information as well as the cultural (ethnic/racial) and economic issues that must be considered when developing program assessment for NEP/SEP. Be sure to follow APA and writing academic paper guidelines. IMPORTANT: These are not original research papers so DO NOT follow that format–you are learning to do a clear and concise summary of the research including the important points of that research>
Draw on the provided article(s) but feel free to draw on other academic research as well.
