I Need Draft Evaluation described in (Number 1) for the surveillance policy on the Lexington Kentucky public library
This project is an evaluation design for the program, problem, or policy you selected. This week, begin pulling together the many elements of this project into an initial draft, or Draft Evaluation Design. Draft Evaluation design will be submitted in the form of a 12 pages (not including the title or reference pages), double-spaced, APA-formatted paper.
Include the following in your Draft Evaluation Design:
- Describe the program, problem, or policy that you identified.
- Identify and explain your revised research question and variables to be used in your evaluation.
- Identify and explain the revised research/evaluation design to be used in your evaluation and how this design addresses issues of validity and reliability.
- Identify and explain the sampling design to be used in your evaluation and the anticipated size of your sample.
- Identify and explain the information/data needed for the evaluation. Explain how, specifically, this information will be collected (e.g., what secondary sources you will use and/or what data collection instrument you will use to collect the information). If you plan on using a survey, please include the survey in an appendix to your paper.
Use at least 10 scholarly sources from the library that were published within the past five years to support your paper. Be sure to follow APA guidelines when citing your sources.
