Anticrime/Prevention Program: Part 1 – Evaluability Assessment Assignment Instructions 

 

Overview

This assignment requires you to develop an evaluability assessment for your chosen problem (examples listed below) using Vito & Higgins evaluability assessment approach in Chapter 4. You will identify and describe the program theory by outlining the components of the program and determining which of them is measurable. You must cover the following in the paper: identify the purpose and scope of the assessment, develop a program template that describes the goals and objectives of the program, and create a short list of questions (5–10) for a focus group or an interview that will help narrow down the scope of the program. You must discuss each theory that supports different aspects of the program if multiple theories are being used. You do not need to address how the program will be analyzed; this will be covered in the Program Impact Paper. You must follow the outline recommended in Chapter 4 of Vito & Higgins.
