Instructions

This assessment requires you to apply your knowledge of evaluation by preparing a comprehensive evaluation plan. You are required to support the evaluation plan by justifying the evaluation approach adopted based on methodological, practical and contextual considerations.

To support the development of your evaluation plan, an evaluation planning template has been provided in the Resources Section. This template is based on the Victorian Department of Health Evaluation Planning Framework).

Your evaluation plan is to be based on one of the three Case Study programs provided in the Resources Section of this document.

Alternatively, you may wish to base your evaluation plan on a program or project of your own choosing. If you choose to prepare your evaluation plan for a program or project of your choosing, you must provide a one-page summary of the program or project as an appendix to your submission. This summary should include a brief program background, program goal, objectives, and strategies. The evaluation plan must include a plan for evaluating four objectives and four strategies. The strategies to be evaluated should be relevant to each of the chosen objectives.

Using evidence, you must present a justification of the evaluation approach adopted that includes the following:

  • Justification for the approach adopted. Outline why the evaluation approach adopted is suitable based on practical and contextual considerations (draw on the content in weeks 1-5 and the case study for details on the context).
  • Discussion of the strengths and weakness of the evaluation approach that demonstrates an understanding of methodological rigour.
  • Identification of steps to be taken when implementing the evaluation plan to improve rigour within the chosen evaluation approach and program context.

Please note the time limit for this assessment. Marking for recordings will cease at 15 minutes +10%. This means that exceeding this time limit may result in the full marking criteria not being marked.
