Question Description

Evaluability Assessment

Evaluability assessment, sometimes referred to as exploratory evaluation, is often conducted as a preliminary activity prior to conducting a formal evaluation. It is commonly used as a planning tool and is a quick and cost effective method to determine whether programs identified as candidates for evaluation have the objectives, activities, and resources that will facilitate a formal evaluation. It is not a substitute for a program evaluation that can determine whether the program is likely to be effective in its current form or whether changes and adjustments may need to be made. (Leviton, Khan, Rog, Dawkins & Cotton, 2010).

For example, the recidivism rate, the extent to which a criminal relapses back into criminal behavior, is a major measure of the effectiveness of criminal justice programs. The Second Chance Act of 2008 is a federal program designed to reduce recidivism in local communities. Grant funds from the Department of Justice were distributed to state, local governments, and nonprofits to develop appropriate programs.

To prepare for this Assignment, review this week’s Learning Resources and consider the evaluability of a funding effort. Access the Second Chance Act website and examine the success stories, focusing on the Roca, Inc. case.

Submit by Day 7 a 2- to 3-page paper which assesses the evaluability of this program, using the criteria in the readings for this week and indicates whether you anticipate that a formative, process, needs assessment, or summative evaluation will be most appropriate. Explain your reasoning.

Program Evaluation Ability Assessment
Introduction
The evaluability of a program investigates whether it is necessary to evaluate a certain
program or otherwise. While this is the most critical purpose, and information provided by
the assessment, in the course of the process the accountants conducting the assessment also
come across other information critical for the organization to know. A proper assessment
bases its information and facts from analyzing the objectives of the given program, and
applying the intended logic, to the achieved results (McDavid et al. 2013). When providing
such details, the assessment helps carry out another feasibility study to the project,
investigating credibility, sustainability and acceptability of the project in the targeted
environment. When carrying out such an assessment, the context is essential, and it helps
determine the nature and scope of the process. For this reason the assessment of a business
investment, will have different requirements in comparison to the assessment of a f...
