Program funders often want to know that their money is being used as intended. Information collected from a process evaluation can be critical to understanding why outcomes were or were not achieved. Data collected as part of the process evaluation may be used to justify changes in program focus, delivery process, staffing, or resources to improve quality.
Determining whether a program is operating as intended can also help the program deal with new demands, such as a sudden influx of clients. These types of changes may call for adjustments in program plans that will allow a program to take these demands into account. Showing that you can make these adjustments will help a potential funder to understand and accept changes in your program that may have resulted from unforeseen circumstances.
For this Assignment, you will use the data you collected from your role play Discussion this week, as well as your knowledge of steps and requirements of a process evaluation, to conduct an initial process evaluation for your selected Life House program.
*Review Chapter 12 of the course text again, as needed.
*Review the process evaluation articles by Holbrook et al. (2018) and Sorenson and Llamas (2018) in the Learning Resources this week.
Note: These articles are more comprehensive than what you will need to do in your Assignment this week—including some additional elements you will complete as part of your Final Project—but they provide a good overview of the key sections for your own process evaluation.
*Review the activities and outputs in your logic model document from Week 5. The information you produced in your logic model will help inform your process evaluation.
Submit your 2-page process evaluation as a Word document. Address the following:
**Briefly describe the Life House program you have selected for evaluation.
**Describe 2–3 process challenges in your program.
**Identify appropriate methods to evaluate each process challenge.
**Make recommendations on how the program can be run more efficiently.
