Due: 7/29/2019 @ 5 PM EST
How do you determine the â€œsuccessâ€ of a human services program? Part of your role as an administrator is to collaborate with your staff to determine how a particular programâ€™s effectiveness will be measured. The outcomes must be clear, realistic, and feasible, and how the outcomes will be assessed must be clear also.
For this Discussion, you will address the â€œSocial Work Research: Program Evaluationâ€ case study in Social Work Case Studies: Foundation Year. Assume the role of an administrator in the case study to evaluate what has occurred in the program and how you might improve it.
1. Post an evaluation of the success of the CALWORKS program based on the information presented in the case study.
2. Define what success would be for the program and how you, as an administrator of the program, might evaluate whether success has been achieved.
3. Make one recommendation for improving the programâ€™s effectiveness.
