Assume that your supervisor or program director has asked you to develop an evaluation plan for the program. This could be a training program, an educational program, a workshop, a series of courses at your workplace, educational intuition, nonprofit organization, or other environment with which you are familiar. The target program should be one for which you have enough information to complete the assignments for this course. If you do not have one you have experienced, consider contacting someone who is in an environment that provides educational programs for adult learners and use that program for the project. If conduct interviews, then follow the Strayer guidelines highlighted below for conducting interviews.
You will develop the plan in stages, which are described in Assignments 1 – 5. Each stage is a building block that will become part of your confirmation evaluation plan with supporting instruments. Your professor will review each stage and offer feedback. Therefore, you will have an opportunity to revise some of the assignments. This is an authentic project and one that can be a significant component of your professional portfolio.
Assignment 6 is where you put all the stages of the project plan together into one paper and add a PowerPoint presentation with sufficient notes provided in the notes section of each slide.
Review all the assignments before starting.
(Note: Guidelines for Interview Assignments at Strayer University:
