Question Description

 

(1) An introduction that includes your research program/policy and a road map to the paper; (2) a thorough review of the literature which includes a description of your selected program or policy, theories related to the program or policy, frameworks for analyzing the program or policy, etc.; (3) an outline of how you would approach evaluation of the program or policy, including [but not limited to] the timeframe in which the evaluation would occur, mechanisms for measuring the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of a program or policy, along with protocols for how the evaluation process will unfold, and; (4) a conclusion that summarizes the aim of the evaluation design, discusses the limitations of your design, and provides recommendations for how the results of the program evaluation would be presented to stakeholders.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

An “A level” paper should include a solid literary analysis of the policy or program, such as the history of the program or policy, previous research of the program or policy, and/or various examples of how such a program or policy has been implemented. Your literature review should be analytical, not summative. I do not want you to engage in a sequential discussion of each separate article or book. Reviews that follow the format “Author A said blah, blah, blah,” “Author B said this and that,” “Author C said so and so,” are unacceptable presentations of the literature. Your sources can be diverse, but I want to see a nice mix of materials. You must use some academic, peer-reviewed journals for this paper.
