Development of an Evaluation Program for Grants
Evaluating Program Effectiveness by Goal Attainment Scaling–
A Quantitative Method for Evaluating Attainment of Multiple Goals.
This training is a didactic block of instruction followed by a workshop session in practical use of the G.A.S. method. This training will enable administrators, principals, counselors, program managers and evaluators to simultaneously rate the effectiveness of a program (like; (PBIS) Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports ) by generating rating system. Scores from this system will provide a measure of the overall effectiveness of the program.
In programs that intend to reduce violence in schools or increase positive behaviors, G.A.S. methods can generate rating scores on how successful the program has been on reducing the numbers or proportions of violent incidents of several types (e.g., bullying, verbal attacks, physical assaults, incidents involving weapons, etc.). G.A.S. methods can also be used to rate the success of programs to change attitudes that are relevant to school violence.
Follow on Training: This training can be supplemented by a contract for a Keys Consultant to assist G.A.S. method users in selecting, defining, measuring, and weighting goals, and in ongoing use of the method to track goal attainment over extended periods of time.
