Wright, Debra
Email: ddwright@camden.rutgers.edu
COURSE CANCELLED 5/19/14.
Online course support fee of $100. This course focuses on the prospects and problems of designing, conducting, and utilizing evaluations as part of the policy process. Inquiries about public programs programs abound. Are the funds being spent commensurate with the outcomes produced? Are there better ways to address and solve society’s problems? The ultimate choices about programs–decisions about whether to continue, modify, or terminate–are policy choices. Political leaders, public administrators, and the public need as much high quality information as possible in order to make intelligent choices. During this course, students will be introduced to basic concepts of evaluation including: various theoretical and philosophical perspectives, issues related to design, measurement and utilization, and ethical problems associated with social science research in the real world setting. This course will provide students with a set of basic skills required in the evaluation process. In addition, this course will help students recognize that: program objectives are seldom as clearly stated or agreed upon as would be desirable for evaluative purposes; no program operates in isolation from other social or economic events; and that data and measurement techniques generally are less adequate than desired. It is the adaptation of theory and the ideal to the actual situation that the practitioner of program evaluation must master.
