Title:Evaluating Family Life Education Programs
Author(s):Hughes, Robert, Jr.
Subject(s):family life education
program development
program evaluation
Abstract:Let's start with a basic premise about evaluation--we benefit by knowing how our programs work and what we could do to make them better. From this perspective, evaluation is merely a tool for learning more about programs. However, we also benefit by tying evaluation to what we need to know at each stage in a project. The most frustrating experience as a program designer is to have to provide data to funders or others about a program that makes little developmental sense. I continue to find an article by Francine Jacobs in 1988 to be one of the most helpful for understanding what questions I need to consider as I approach evaluation issues.
