Assessing your Programs Evaluability (Sessions 1 & 2) March 14, 2011 1:51:50 1st Session: As resources continue to be scarce, the demand for accountability in administering grant funding grows even stronger. Yet it can be difficult to know what initiatives are ready for and worth investing in for outcomes-focused evaluation. Implementing evaluability assessments (EAs) prior to committing to a large scale outcome evaluation design can be a significant help to gain insight regarding an initiative’s design, implementation, and readiness for an outcomes-focused evaluation. 2nd Session: Further, the Systematic Screening and Assessment (SSA) Method pairs evaluability assessment with expert review and judgment, and with modest resource investment it can generate a wealth of knowledge about a series of initiatives. Through this structured and iterative approach, program funders and managers can make better use of evaluation resources, and programs can benefit from recommendations for design improvements.

Curriculum – How to Build Scope and Sequence June 28, 2012 1:01:06 Conducted by: Amy G. Chilcote Extension Associate Curriculum Lead K-12 Outreach Coordinator NC State University Autumn Guin 4-H Curriculum Evaluation NC State University Participants will explore the questions of “How do I plan?” and “How do I share my plan?” The plan phase will include strategies for how curriculum developers can build scope and sequence into their curriculum so that individual items and concepts connect with each other to help the learner achieve identified outcomes. Discussion of the planning phase will also focus on the importance of ensuring the curriculum is valid. Part of this involves using and citing research-based supporting materials appropriately, so the webinar will provide guidelines for selecting relevant research and citing references appropriately. The share phase will address how to involve stakeholders into the design process and share the curriculum plan. Learning Outcomes Participants will be able to compare and contrast their current planning strategies for ensuring scope and sequence to strategies presented in the webinar. Participants will be able to reference credible, research-based informational sources. Participants will be able to critique the benefits and challenges of implementing research-based curriculum.
