Assignment: Designing a Plan for Outcome Evaluation
Social workers can apply knowledge and skills learned from conducting one type of evaluation to others. Moreover, evaluations themselves can inform and com`plement each other throughout the life of a program. This week, you apply all that you have learned about program evaluation throughout this course to aid you in program evaluation.
To prepare for this Assignment, review “Basic Guide to Program Evaluation (Including Outcomes Evaluation)” from this week’s resources, Plummer, S.-B., Makris, S., & Brocksen S. (Eds.). (2014b). Social work case studies: Concentration year. Retrieved from http://www.vitalsource.com , especially the sections titled “Outcomes-Based Evaluation” and “Contents of an Evaluation Plan.” Then, select a program that you would like to evaluate. You should build on work that you have done in previous assignments, but be sure to self-cite any written work that you have already submitted. Complete as many areas of the “Contents of an Evaluation Plan” as possible, leaving out items that assume you have already collected and analyzed the data.
By Day 7
Submit a 4- to 5-pages that outlines a plan for a program evaluation focused on outcomes. Be specific and elaborate. Include the following information:
The purpose of the evaluation, including specific questions to be answered
The outcomes to be evaluated
The indicators or instruments to be used to measure those outcomes, including the strengths and limitations of those measures to be used to evaluate the outcomes
A rationale for selecting among the six group research designs
The methods for collecting, organizing and analyzing data

By Day 5 Respond to at least two colleagues from the perspective of an intereste

By Day 5
Respond to at least two colleagues from the perspective of an interested stakeholder for the program by doing the following:
Provide a brief description of the role that you are taking.
Provide an evaluation of the group research design that they have chosen, and criteria that your colleagues have generated (choice of outcome and method of evaluation) from the perspective of the stakeholder whom you have chosen.
Provide support based on your evaluation
Ask questions about the plan for research design and the questions that the evaluation plan will address from your chosen perspective.
TWO OR THREE PARAGRAPHS RESPONDING TO EACH PERSON. OPINIONS SHOULD BE BACKED BY RESEARCH AND HAVE IN-TEXT CITATIONS.

Instructions
As you can see from the material, injuries play a big role in Public Health.  For this assignment, you will create a chart with data specific to injuries and injury prevention.  Your chart will have 5 rows, each with a different type of injury that impacts Public Health.  Across the top of the chart, you will have 2 columns.  You will populate the columns with 1.  Data for the specific injury listed  2.  Prevention strategies for the specific injury listed.

*remember – this is your final assignment*
The article on Photovoice assigned will illuminate the power of utilizing this technique.  I want you to leave this class with some tools you can use in the future.  Photovoice is a great tool for research, community building, program planning, and policy- making. Images combined with a person’s own voice about a topic can be an important tool for change. You will be taking pictures of what health means to you.  Here is what you need to do:
1.  You will compile 5 photos of things that represent ‘health’ to you… I want you to focus on the key items we have focused on througout the semster, and how you see them represented in your world.
2.  You will provide a summary of each of your photos indicating what and how the photo represents the key item you are focusing on (you need to cleary state this) – and how they represent to you and why you choose it.
How will you know if you have been successful with this activity?
1.  You will have submitted 5 photos
2.  You will have submitted a summary of each photo – indicating what key element they represent and why you choose it.

Group programs are common in social work. Just as with other types of programs, social workers must understand the options available to them and know how to select the appropriate research design.
For this Discussion, you evaluate group research design methods that can be used for an outcome evaluation of a foster parent training program. You also generate criteria to be measured in the program.
To prepare for this Discussion, review the “Social Work Research: Planning a Program Evaluation” case study in this week’s resources, Plummer, S.-B., Makris, S., & Brocksen S. (Eds.). (2014b). Social work case studies: Concentration year. Retrieved from http://www.vitalsource.com , and the section of “Basic Guide to Outcomes-Based Evaluation for Nonprofit Organizations with Very Limited Resources”, titled “Overview of Methods to Collect Information.”
Post your explanation of which group research design and data collection method from those outlined in the Resources you selected as appropriate for the “Social Work Research: “Planning a Program Evaluation” case study and why.
Then, generate criteria to be measured using the research design by identifying a specific outcome and a method for measuring that outcome. Specify who will collect the data and how the data will be collected.
By Day 5
Respond to at least two colleagues from the perspective of an interested stakeholder for the program by doing the following:
Provide a brief description of the role that you are taking.
Provide an evaluation of the group research design that they have chosen, and criteria that your colleagues have generated (choice of outcome and method of evaluation) from the perspective of the stakeholder whom you have chosen.
Provide support based on your evaluation
Ask questions about the plan for research design and the questions that the evaluation plan will address from your chosen perspective.

We discussed the Fashion Industry (Fast Fashion) and its impact on the environment and child
labour. The $5 T-shirt is readily available today, and its existence has profound implications for the
type of society in which we live. Describe and analyze these implications and connect them to our course
