Hsm 270 Week 5 Check Point

Process and Outcome Evaluations
A Process Evaluation has three main components, which are program planning and development, program interventions, and database management system. These three main components are used to achieve these aims, describe program interventions’ development, implementation, and activities, provide quantitative and qualitative data on the services delivered and their effectiveness, and document the appropriateness and acceptability of the program within the target community.
Outcome-based evaluations focus on if the organization or program is succeeding. The examination of pre and post intervention data is collected to determine their effect on the targeted population. The three main focus categories in the evaluation are getting things done, member development and community strength. Outcome evaluations are an ongoing process that yields reliable results.

Examples of Process Evaluation are:

1. Students and parents in an afterschool program fill out survey forms to
indicate if the program has helped them in ways that meet specific goals.

2.Regular classroom teachers help children in an afterschool program and fill out
questionnaires about their program elements.

Outcome Evaluation:

These evaluations examine the effectiveness of intervention. Strategies employed for intervention are examined to determine their effect on the target population over time. Pre-intervention and post-intervention data are collected. (2003). These evaluations yield information about program reliability and whether results can be replicated.

Examples of Outcome Evaluation are:
1.The number of students dropping out of school goes down after the implementation of the Youth Symphony program and more students also
Attend college.

2.School funding increased for afterschool programs from $10,000 to $30,000
after implementation of the Symphony program due to the decrease in the
dropout rate.
