How we collect data
Our organization’s mission is to provide related services to residents, clients, customers, patients, and our community. We evaluate our programs to ensure that these programs are indeed useful to the community. Our program evaluation is goal-based and include process, outcomes, effectiveness, formative, summative, and needs assessments.
To analyze the Wonderfully Made program, we process our data collection and evaluation including, program background, client, staff, and services. Moreover, the program must highlights the administrative supports, stakeholder satisfaction, and program efficiency. Cultural competence and ethical consideration must be addressed. These important steps allow mentors to suggest what particular processes relate to the specific results of successful outcomes.
Upon completion of every session, the strengths and limitations of process evaluation will be addressed to understand the overall factors that are critical to the success of this program.
We will be measuring successful outcomes by keeping track of hours spent on different tasks, activities, quizzes, videos, and participation.
The program assessment process includes reviewing the original targets and determining the degree to which they were accomplished. Since a list of completed tasks does not generally provide sufficient support to conclude that a substantial improvement has occurred, we will focus on further research in order to understand the complexities of various factors that relate to the effectiveness of the program and other intersecting factors that may impact the program. Finally, the program will end with a survey based on a brief questionnaire for participants in order to practice inclusion and diversity.
Benefits of Evaluation and Data Collection
The program will be externally evaluated by community stakeholders and the organization that the participants are attending. Thus, the focus of the evaluation is the participants and their success and positive well being. The main stakeholders of the program may include community members, non-profit organizations, the government, and private investors. We plan to engage stakeholders, such as community organizations, in the evaluation process by communicating the program results that can contribute to the well being of the community.
The evaluation process will not only strengthen the quality of the program but will also equip participants with skills, confidence, and professional development.
Writing a Program Evaluation
In order to write the program evaluation there should be some mandatory steps. For example, clearly stating what are the goals, description and objective of the program. Moreover, explaining the methods of data collection, if it is quantitative or qualitative. Furthermore, clearly list the evaluation questions and explain what would be the sources of evaluating that data.
