1. What is the difference between needs assessment and evaluation (formative and summative) ? and how do these activities tie or supplement each other?

2. Kaufman and Guerra-Lopez describe seven elements or steps of the Impact-Evaluation Process. Using this process as a framework to develop an evaluation plan, identify three steps/elements that may be the most challenging to carry out and three that may be the least challenging for evaluating your system. Explain why.

If you want to read more about (program) evaluation, you may want to start with the Encyclopedia of Evaluation from Sage Publications available from NSU library at this link:.

Mathison, S. (Ed.). (2005). Encyclopedia of Evaluation. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, Inc. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.4135/9781412950558

By using the search tool of the alphabetical index, you can search for the CIPP model from Stufflebeam, learn about Scriven, design evaluation, and other topics/concepts related to evaluation.
