    A Framework for Program Evaluation

    A practical, non-prescriptive tool, the evaluation framework summarizes and organizes the steps and standards for effective program evaluation.

    See the original 1999 MMWR article, Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health for more about how the framework was developed.

    CDC’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Branch Program Evaluation Toolkit

    CDC’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Branch Program Evaluation Toolkit helps grantees plan and implement evaluations of their NCCCP-funded programs. The toolkit provides general guidance on evaluation principles and techniques, as well as practical templates and tools. It has five main sections:

    1. Evaluation Primer: Introduces key evaluation concepts.
    2. How to Evaluate Your CCC Program: Walks users through the application of the CDC framework and includes a set of tools and templates that can be used to conduct evaluation activities.
    3. Glossary.
    4. For Further Study: Presents a list of additional resources and selected training opportunities.
    5. Toolkit Evaluation: Explains how CDC will conduct future evaluations of this resource.
    Developing an Effective Evaluation Report: Setting the Course for Effective Program Evaluation

    This workbook applies the CDC Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health to construct a final evaluation report. The Framework lays out a six-step process for the decisions and activities involved in planning and conducting an evaluation. While the Framework provides steps for program evaluation, the steps are not always linear and represent a more back-and-forth effort; some can be completed concurrently. In some cases, it will make sense to skip a step and go back to it. The important thing is to consider and use the steps to construct a final evaluation report within the specific context of your program.

    A final evaluation report presents findings, conclusions, and recommendations. It has been said that a report is never truly final, unless the program is ending, because evaluation is an ongoing process. In this workbook, “final” refers to the term that funders often use to denote the last report of a funding period or the final report of a specific evaluation activity.

    Introduction to Program Evaluation for Public Health Programs: A Self-Study Guide

    This document is a “how to” guide for planning and implementing evaluation activities. The manual, based on CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health, is intended to assist managers and staff of public, private, and community public health programs to plan, design, implement and use comprehensive evaluations in a practical way. The strategy presented in this manual will help assure that evaluations meet the diverse needs of internal and external stakeholders. Such needs include assessing and documenting program implementation, outcomes, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of activities, and taking action based on evaluation results to increase the impact of programs.

    NCCRT Evaluation Toolkit

    This toolkit is specifically geared to assist those who have little to no evaluation experience, but do have a willingness to learn. The revised toolkit has been enhanced to include a section on case studies, offer more advice on data analysis, offer examples for those trying to do clinical practice improvement and more fully integrate advice about cultural competencies. The purpose of this toolkit is to provide information and tools to help organizations or groups evaluate their efforts, measure outcomes, report their results, and improve their programs over time.
