Planning Program Evaluation

PART OF: Adult and Continuing Education

Course description

Available for 1.0 elective credit in the CACE program.

Only offered online.

This course focuses on the application of program evaluation theory and principles with a focus on application in an adult education setting. Students will learn how to build a practical program evaluation, to understand the real-life barriers that face evaluation projects and the strategies that can be used to overcome these barriers.

We’ll briefly review program evaluation history, including the emergence of evaluation models. Five key models will be examined and related to the five forms of evaluation developed by Owen (1999). Mini case studies will be used to exemplify these models and forms. Evaluation approaches will be applied to the various mini-cases and a detailed design plan (blueprint) will be developed for a particular case
