The goal of the Session Long Project is to develop a plan to evaluate a program (see general instructions below).

Module 1

For the first component of the Session Long Project, you will write a 4- to 5-page introduction (utilizing at least 3–5 references) in which you identify a program of interest to you. This will be your SLP topic.

Here are the specific tasks for the Module 1 SLP:

  1. Briefly provide an overview of the program in which you discuss the nature of the program. Be sure to conduct a scholarly literature review so that you are familiar with evaluations that have been published on programs of the same variety as your SLP topic.
  2. Discuss the type of evaluation that you would plan to conduct (e.g., process evaluation, impact evaluation, etc.). Justify your selection.

For the Session Long Project, develop a plan to evaluate an actual program.

Sample topics: If you are in the College of Education then you may wish to develop a plan to evaluate an Adult Outreach program, Experiential Education, Special Education, Environmental Education, Accelerated Learning, Tutorials, Virtual Learning programs, etc.

If you are in the College of Health Sciences, then the program may be a mental health program or initiative, governmental health program, public health intervention, sexually transmitted disease prevention program, health care program, social welfare program, safety training program, etc.

In each module of the SLP, you will focus on one specific aspect of developing your evaluation plan. Unless otherwise stated, each component of the SLP should be at least 4–5 pages in length. Note: For the SLP in this course, we will not actually conduct a program evaluation; we will merely develop a plan to do so.

At the end of each module you will submit responses to the specific items posted on each module’s SLP page.

You will submit the final Session Long Project at the end of the session as a cumulative project. In essence, the Session Long Project will be a culmination of your understanding and your ability to synthesize the course material into developing a plan for evaluation of a chosen program.

Your modular SLP submissions should provide evidence of satisfactory progress. Your final SLP will contain the complete discussion of the issues/topics from each module and will be graded.

4–5 pages typed and double-spaced using 12-point Times New Roman font and 1-inch page margins. Use headers throughout the paper to aid you in not overlooking vital elements of the assignment and to make the document easier for the reader to follow.
