Final evaluation and research design
Submit by Day 1 your completed Final Project by reviewing and editing your Assignments to create a cohesive paper. Add an Introduction and Rationale for the study. Your Final Project should be 4–6 pages in length.Note: This is not a “cut and paste exercise.” During the term, you have developed all of the groundwork for your Final Project, but now you must create a cohesive document. For example, although stakeholders may be mentioned, it would not be necessary—and could be unwise—to include all of the detail that may have been considered in the design phase. As another example, simply pasting in the logic model with no explanation would not prove enlightening for any reader who is unfamiliar with the logic model process.Below, you will find an outline of topics that should be addressed in your Final Project. You are not required to exactly follow this outline; however, you must be certain that each component is clearly addressed in your final design.Although your project for this course is only a design document and not a full report, you will find it useful to review your Learning Resources. Many of the same points and principles apply equally well at the research design stage.Your Final Project will include the following elements:Problem definition and intervention descriptionLogic model or logframeDevelopment of indicatorsData collection strategyEvaluation design, needs assessment, or formative or summative impact evaluationData analysis strategyStakeholder requirementsFirst, please ensure you thoroughly read the assignment requirements. Along with this, I highly recommend you create separate sections in your paper based on the requirements so that you ensure you address all areas and so that I can clearly see how you addressed each part of the assignment requirements. Note the page requirements. You can submit more pages, but I highly recommend you be succinct, as the requirement is not for a very long paper in which you may stray a bit off topic when you are to be focused on your project/program evaluation. For example, you won’t need to add definitions of terms or discuss studies related to the one you are conducting. Second, your assignment is based on all our discussion s and assignments over the course. You should be writing about the organization you selected to analyze from Week 1, and ensure you review all comments I have given on past assignments. You are expected to use information from previous assignments for your Final Project. If you use information from papers submitted for this specific class, it is not considered plagiarism. Therefore, you can cut and paste from papers you submitted for this class. Finally, make sure your paper is written in proper APA format and especially your citations and references. You want to do a good proofread and spell check of your paper before submitting.
