Request Description

Distinguish between a project-wide evaluation plan and an objective-oriented evaluation plan. What are the pros and cons of each type of evaluation plan?

 

 

 

A project-wide evaluation plan is an evaluation that steps back and looks at the big picture.  The text gives a good example of students being tutored. When using a project-wide evaluation, the evaluators take a step back and look at the main goal of the program: To provide tutoring services.  To see if the main goal of the plan is being carried out, there can be questionnaires and tests done to check the intellectual level of the newly tutored students. 
*Pros of this evaluation are that it is direct, and to the point to see if the problem is being solved.  The evaluators only ask big picture questions, but can ask as many as they want.
*Cons are that they overlook objectives and minor details.

        An objective-oriented evaluation plan should focus on two areas: The accomplishments or process evaluation, and benefits to the people receiving service or outcome evaluation.  This evaluation style looks at each objective, and asks the company if they were successful in meeting each goal and outcome. 

       The pros of having the project wide evaluation is that it is evaluated from every angle, and if services need to be changed, expanded, or deleted entirely, they can be.
