Formative Evaluation Strategy: Project Implementation
The evaluation will draw upon a design developed by Stake (2004) that examines the congruence between planned and actual activities and outcomes as well as detailed responsive approach. The evaluation will monitor both project management processes, as well as success in achieving project goals. A major emphasis will be on generating internal feedback to the project team, providing the basis for any needed revisions or adjustments in project activities and program development. This evaluation will include a review of project structure to ensure alignment and resource support of goals, objectives, outcomes, annual benchmarks, and strategies, and to review assumptions and strategies as information is gathered. It is also intended to provide evidence for gaps related to project goals, objectives and annual benchmarks. The evaluator will summarize overall findings and create an annual evaluation report. Project personnel will review the findings; identify implications, and design action steps necessary for improvement, additional research, dissemination, and sustainability.
