Imagine that you are a health program evaluator for your county health department. Your department was recently awarded funding from your state to develop and implement a program to prevent tobacco use among adolescents. The funding agency requires your program to conduct formative, process, and impact evaluations. Your job is to collaborate with the program design and implementation staff to design and conduct all aspects of the program evaluation. In your initial discussion post, you will present a mini-evaluation proposal by addressing both of the following questions:

  1. Develop at least two examples of evaluation questions to address the formative, process, and impact evaluation of the program. Describe how the evaluation questions you developed are related to the program objectives.
  2. Discuss the instruments, methods and procedures you will use to answer the evaluation questions. Be sure to specify how and why these are appropriate by linking them to the overall rationale and reasons for conducting evaluation.

Discussion: Imagine that you are a health educator and programmer for your county health department. Your department was recently awarded funding from your state to develop and implement a program to prevent tobacco use among adolescents. As part of your program needs assessment, you must determine the availability of, access to, and attitudes toward tobacco among local middle and high school students. Recent and locally applicable data are not available from existing sources.

  1. Discuss two data collection methods that you would use to gather this information. Specify the benefits and drawbacks to each method and describe whether the data you collect with each method will be quantitative or qualitative.
