Evaluation Context Worksheet-2020 COVID-19 Version*
This worksheet is intended to help you prepare for your Agency-Based Evaluation Proposal. The answers to the questions (below) will serve as the foundation for the assignment sections on the description of your agency, context, and stakeholders. This worksheet will also help you hone in on a needed and feasible evaluation focus and question. Proper citations rules apply. That is, any information that is not original needs to be cited and put in direct quotes (if applicable).
*Please note that this worksheet has been amended in response to students not being in field placement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, it will look slightly different than the one given as an example on the course site, so please use this version. The fundamental difference is that questions requiring you to ask supervisors and other co-workers questions have been removed. Instead, you will be asked to draw from your memory or working knowledge of the agency.

need to be considered? Is this an issue concerning how a program is being offered
(process evaluation) or an examination of the impact of a program on client
outcomes (outcome evaluation)?

on the client’s ability (or interest) in attending, participating, or engaging in
