Discuss the advantages of a qualitative and quantitative evaluation for the program you chose from Appendix B. Which evaluation approach would you use and why is it appropriate? Find a classmate’s post that uses the same approach and one that uses the alternate approach. Respond to each, stating whether you think the chosen approach is appropriate for the program described. Explain your reasoning.

 

 

 

When evaluating a program plan, there are certain ways to look at how the program will be benefiting people.   There are different methods, such as qualitative, which uses inductive methods, and there is also quantitative, which employs deductive ways of evaluating programs.  These two methods complement each other because they help tell the program “stories” more comprehensively with structure and contents.  It provides actual data and personal deliverance. 

            I chose the “Santa Rosa Philharmonic Youth Symphony” which I think would best be supported with qualitative data.  I think this because it is a program designed to provide better opportunity to students.  The children involved in the program are not at risk or in danger.  To use qualitative data, you would be monitoring growth and change in the youth symphony environment.  It would be a goal to understand how the program will help the children by providing them with opportunities for the future.   To make a qualitative assumption, there is a question and hypothesis at the end.  I think the question would be “How would the program benefit these children” and the hypothesis would be, “The children would have better opportunities to be successful and have an open career path, as well as staying occupied after school and staying out of trouble to maintain a good grade and reputation by upholding the values of the symphony.”  This would show the community that the program is worthwhile, and then the data can begin to process on how the children benefit and what the changes are that have taken place in the community by providing the program.
