Title:Program Clarification: What are We Really Trying To Do?
Author(s):Hughes, Robert, Jr.
Subject(s):program evaluation
program development
family life education
Abstract:At one time or another, most people involved in developing or implementing programs for individuals and families ask themselves the question, "So what are we really trying to do with this program?" Although this may sound dismaying, the absence of this self-reflective question would be even more dismaying. I sometimes think that every program and activity is destined to go awry, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It allows for successful program clarification. Through program evaluation, developers examine where they started and where they have arrived, as well as consider what the process means. Although all stages of evaluation are important, program evaluation may be the most critical in our efforts to develop effective programs.
