Program Evaluation Plan Part 3: Communicating Results
For the course project, you have been assuming the role of a consultant who has been hired to develop a plan for an evaluation of a clinical mental health counseling program. Remember, you are creating a fictitious but plausible program with hypothetical stakeholders, clients, interventions, and measures. The purpose of the proposed evaluation is to guide program improvements and document progress toward the program's mission and goals. (Please see attached program that I am using that you will need to work off of) Thank you.
Your assignment in Unit 4 was to create an introduction, a description of the program to be evaluated, and the results of your hypothetical needs assessment.
Your assignment In Unit 8 was to establish your research base for the program evaluation by reviewing published evaluations and relevant research, and then to decide on a model of evaluation you plan to use in your program evaluation. The assignment also included a discussion of ethical standards and culturally sensitive strategies.
For this final assignment, complete your evaluation plan with recommendations for how the program could be improved and research in counseling could be advanced in the future. You should synthesize your recommendations and requirements for the program evaluation you are proposing and describe how you will present and disseminate the findings of your evaluation.
To achieve a successful project experience and outcome, you must include the following sections for Part 3:
Communicating Results to Counselors and Colleagues (approximately one page).
Communicating Results to Stakeholders (approximately one page).
Ethical and Cultural Considerations When Communicating Results (approximately one page).
Using Results to Improve the Program (approximately one page).
Using Results to Advance the Counseling Field (approximately one page).
Be a total of 5-7 pages of text (excluding the title page and the references page).
Include scholarly references to support your ideas about research on the kind of program you are evaluating (population, clinical focus, counseling approach), and program evaluation procedures (program evaluation model, needs assessment, ethical and cultural considerations).
Your Evaluation Plan proposal seems to be very well designed. This last part of your assignment is the final stage of any good research paper. This last stage is understanding your results and showing how your results are relevant to stakeholders, other counselling professionals , your peers, and the public at large. As well, based on your results, what are your recommendations for your program to improve deliverance, outcome, etc. Finally, state some ideas how your research can improve to further benefit the counselling field.
In short, this last part of your assignment is the Discussion and Conclusion of any research paper.
I will give you an example of an outline to this part of your assignment:
