Annotation: DESIGNED PRIMARILY AS A TOOL FOR INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOPS AND FOR MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL (PARTICULARLY PROJECT DIRECTORS), THIS WORKBOOK PRESENTS THE STEPS FOR PLANNING A SYSTEM FOR PROJECT MONITORING OR EVALUATION.
Abstract: OVERVIEWS HELP PORTRAY A PROJECT ANALYSIS, A MONITORING PLAN, AND AN EVALUATION PLAN. AN OUTLINE OF THE STEPS INVOLVED IN WRITING A PROBLEM STATEMENT DURING THE COURSE OF A PROJECT ANALYSIS ADDRESSES THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE PROBLEM, THE MENTION OF A SPECIFIC CRIME OR TYPE OF CRIME, THE INDICATION OF A SPECIFIC JURISDICTION OR SPONSORING AGENCY OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, THE DESIGNATION OF THE TARGET POPULATION, AND THE LOCATION OF THE PROJECT IN THE APPROPRIATE GEOGRAPHIC AREA. EXERCISES ILLUSTRATE THE CONVERSION OF PROJECT STATEMENTS INTO PROJECT GOALS AND A SET OF PROJECT OBJECTIVES. INSTRUCTIONS FOR WRITING MEASURABLE OBJECTIVES FOCUS (1) ON HOW TO IDENTIFY OBSERVABLE BEHAVIORS OF CONDITIONS THAT WILL OCCUR IF AN OBJECTIVE IS BEING MET, (2) HOW TO DESCRIBE THESE BEHAVIORS OR CONDITIONS CONCRETELY, AND (3) HOW TO CONVERT THESE BEHAVIORS INTO MEASURES FOR BOTH INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS AND THE PROJECT. A BASIC MONITORING PROJECT PLAN IS PRESENTED TO HELP ANSWER QUESTIONS REGARDING PROJECT PRODUCTIVITY, CLIENT PROGRESS THROUGH THE PROJECT, NEEDED RESOURCES, AND PROJECT ADMINISTRATION. FINALLY, THREE RESEARCH DESIGNS ARE PRESENTED THAT USE RANDOMLY SELECTED AND COMPARISON GROUPS AND BEFORE-AND-AFTER MEASUREMENTS OF CLIENT BEHAVIOR. ILLUSTRATIVE TABLES AND EXERCISES ARE INCLUDED FOR EACH CHAPTER, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY AND ANSWERS TO THE EXERCISES ARE GIVEN.
