Program Evaluation and Measurement Tools

Assignment Description
The goal of this paper is to identify an evaluation plan for your project. You need to identify which
health outcomes you will measure. How will you evaluate the effectiveness of your intervention
plan? Identify any measurement tools or evaluation strategies that may be useful in determining
efficacy, efficiency and quality. Your project will most likely involve an effectiveness evaluation.
You may want to create an evaluation plan that would facilitate tracking and trending. It is
important to have clear goals on how you plan to evaluate the effectiveness of your proposed
intervention. It is equally important to measure parameters with tools that have established
reliability and validity.
