Formative evaluation components will provide ongoing data regarding both participation levels and outcomes to inform program decisions and staff activities. Summative components will provide data for assessing program progress toward intended outcomes, including both the short-term and long-term metrics. The evaluation will feature a collaboration between PEER and program stakeholders with the goal of ensuring that evaluation findings are of high value and use to the highest priority stakeholders.
Our proposed evaluation takes place in phases; the process will respond to and accommodate emerging needs and opportunities as they arise. The phases and major activities for each phase are described below. The timing of these evaluation phases will be aligned with implementation of project activities.
1. Planning and needs assessment
The Neuroscience for Neighborhoods project envisions a rich and complex collaboration among researchers, undergraduate students, health professional students, science and education faculty, and K-12 school teachers, administrators and students. Because successful project implementation will depend on well-informed planning, this phase of the evaluation will seek to provide program staff with relevant data. PEER-facilitated evaluation activities during this phase will include the
