    • What results were found in each phase of the process?
  • Compare and contrast the evaluation process of this program with  what our course readings suggest should be included in each phase of  evaluation.
  • Analyze the effectiveness of each of the methods used to evaluate the program. Consider the following questions: 
    • Did the methods used to conduct each phase of the evaluation provide  the information the program managers set out to investigate? Why or why  not?
    • Are the methods used in the evaluations internally and externally valid? Why or why not?
    • What was missing in each phase of evaluation?
    • What additional information do you think should have been collected? How should it have been collected?
