Revised Evaluation Plan
PEACE Domestic Violence Agency's main purpose is to provide victim support and shelter, victim advocacy and education and empower those who are directly or indirectly affected by domestic violence. To continue helping the many who suffer from domestic abuse, PEACE Domestic Violence Agency will develop an evaluation plan to assess the program services and the effects those program services have on participant's lives. The purpose of the evaluation is so PEACE can either show means for improvement on provided program services or show means for eradicating the program service altogether. The decision to eradicate a provided service or implement improvements is the primary purpose of the assessment.
The evaluation plan that PEACE Domestic Violence Agency will employ is a project-wide evaluation with an empowerment approach. This particular evaluation plan compliments the domestic violence program offered by the agency due to the amount of concentration put upon the purpose of the program and also provides a structured framework for the programs future success. A project-wide evaluation plan involves the program staff in the evaluation development and implementation process, thus enabling them to feel empowered.
The first step in developing a project-wide evaluation plan is to “identify the answer to the big question,” (Yuen & Terao, 2003, p. 53) which in regards to PEACE Domestic Violence Agency is whether or not the cycle of domestic violence can be reduced and how or whether educating people about domestic violence can play a key role in domestic violence prevention. The inclusion of process and outcome evaluations will provide the documentation of accomplishments and allow the agency to indicate "what benefits were achieved, as a result, of the…...

...Scenario Evaluation Plan Karen Crawford HSM/270 Dakira Starks-Walker 12/29/2012 As you read this paper you will find that it is going to be about a fictional program scenario that I have chosen to work with. The scenario that I have chosen is scenario three PEACE Domestic Violence Agency. Also it will be comparing program planning with program evaluation in human services organizations and how the components are related. It will be identifying specific examples of how program planning and evaluation interrelate in the scenario that was chosen. Last it will be identifying technical and political aspects of program planning and evaluation that may be encountered in the scenario and how the aspects could affect the planning and evaluation process. After reviewing the material provided about program planning and program evaluation in human service organizations it seems as though they do compare to each other. According to the reading it states that “When planned carefully, these two set of activities can be integrated into an organized set of ongoing operations that promote and support each other” (Mika, 1996, p. 6). “Program planning and evaluation are both the process and the product of the political and economic environments” (Yuen & Terao, 2003). So from what can be understood they both are a process, but they do differ in how they process things in an organization. They way that both of the components are related is once one has his or her plan in order then...

Scenario Evaluation Plan

...enario Scenario Evaluation Plan 3/4/13 HSM/270 Dakira Starks-Walker Scenario Evaluation Plan Evaluation is one of the most important steps in the development and implementation of any program or project. As imperative as it is to lay a solid foundation through mission, goals, and objectives, it is equally as important to have a way to define success or failure through use of appropriate tools, accurate reporting, and proper evaluation techniques. Deciding whether to use a process evaluation format or outcome evaluation can be challenging, but often a coordinated system is most telling. The main objective of any evaluation technique is to provide the state of the agency and how well or poorly their programs are working, what may need to be changed, and how well they continue to meet their mission, goals and objectives. The PEACE Domestic Violence is an organization to reduce victim trauma, empower survivors, and promote recovery through direct services. PEACE is committed to reducing the incidence of sexual assault and domestic violence through education and strives to challenge societal norms and beliefs that condone and perpetuate violence in the community. The mission, goals, and objectives that are presented in the scenario are fairly generalized. Without an adequate, detailed description of how the program will be administrated and implemented, it is nearly impossible to perform a process evaluation. Process evaluations serve to collect the......

An Effective Training Evaluation Plan

...Training Evaluation Plan Instructions: In the online lectures in Module 3 and your textbook readings ("Training and Development", Leadership", and "Motivation, Job Satisfaction, and Job Involvement") you learned about the importance of training your employees. However, training is only effective when employees can retain the information and incorporate what they learn to improve their job performance. You have just learned that your company is looking for ways to cut back expenses. One of the cost cutting measures being considered is to terminate the training department, as the company considers this an expense and they do not believe training is contributing to the profitability of the company. As the head of the training department it is your job to defend the value of the department. You realize that well trained employees perform their jobs more efficiently and consequently can contribute to higher productivity and profits for the company. One way to show the value of training is to have tools that will allow a manager to track the performance of an employee both before and after they have received training. 1.Report Write a report that will be shared with senior management on why training is a very important part of the company’s overall financial success.

Revised Fairytales

...always portrayed as a higher-class being than the female. The main issue has to do with feminism. While De Beaumont was busy creating the perfect girl to obligingly marry her beast and break the curse, Carter was fixated on going against the stereotypical roles placed on the female gender. Not many writers wished to go against female gender roles until feminist literature gained popularity, yet, even to this day, society does not hear many feminist fairytales. Fairytales play greatly into our perception of the single story. No parent wants to tell their daughter about exploiting her sexuality, which is how we came up with the unachievable dream of becoming well-mannered princesses. I simply found it shocking that the story could actually be revised with that moral....

Scenario Evaluation Plan

...Scenario Evaluation Plan Deanna Potter HSM 270 Septemeber 3, 2015 Florence Wisn Scenario Evaluation Plan One of the most important steps that need to be developed and implemented in a program is the evaluation plan. The evaluation plan will tell if a program has been a failure or success. Having the right tools with accurate reporting, plus making sure no bases has played a role in the evaluation, will tell you if the programs missions and goals have been achieved or not. PEACE Domestic Violence agencies have a purpose, and the purpose of the Peace Domestic Violence Agency is helping provide the victims with support, shelter, advocacy and education. Giving the victims and those who are affected by domestic violence empowerment will also help them to break away from the abuse. There is a wide range of evaluations that can be used, and it would be best to do some research on the different types to see what works best for the agency or organization. The evaluation plan that would work best for the PEACE Domestic Violence Agency would be a project-wide evaluation with an empowerment approach. A project-wide evaluation will work with the agency's domestic violence program because it not only involves the victims it also involves the staff in the evaluation development and implementation processes. With PEACE being committed to reducing domestic violence and sexual assaults, they can do that by educating the victims and the community. Education will help make a......

Scenario Evaluation Plan

...Scenario Evaluation Plan HSM/270 Scenario Evaluation Plan The purpose of the PEACE Domestic Violence Agency is to promote a sense of security, support, and empowerment for individuals and families who are affected by domestic violence. To continue helping those who suffer from domestic abuse, the PEACE agency will develop an evaluation plan using a simple framework design. This agency wants to assess the work it is performing, and the reason for evaluation is it wants to know the effects its services have on people’s lives. The program wants to improve upon those efforts, but does not want to continue to exert time and resources into efforts which are not helpful. The evaluation plan the PEACE Domestic Violence Agency will use will be a project-wide evaluation using the empowerment approach. This form of evaluation plan will work perfectly with the agency’s domestic violence program because it concentrates on the purpose of the program and provides structure for the big picture. In addition, it involves program staff in the evaluation development and implementation, which enables them to feel empowered. The first step in developing this type of plan is to “identify the answer to the big question” (Yuen & Terao, 2003, p.53) which, in the case of the PEACE agency, is whether or not the incidents of domestic violence can be reduced and how. Another question could be whether or not educating people about domestic violence can play a key role in......
