CDC Evaluation Working Group
The Web pages on the CDC site provide explanation of a framework for program evaluation that has been developed by the CDC Evaluation Working Group and include additional resources that may help when applying the framework. As the Group notes Program evaluation is an essential organizational practice in public health; however it is not practiced consistently across program areas nor is it well-integrated into the day-to-day management of most programs.
Discuss some of the obstacles you can foresee in this process and how you would try to overcome them.
Indicate whether the evaluative measures are process (activities) or outcomes.
Review the budget you created in Week 8. Does your budget reflect the costs for evaluation? If so do you think it is sufficient? If not how would you amend to cover the costs of evaluation?
