Organizing Recommendations from Potential Results

In the field, you will need to be able to communicate the results of your evaluation in a way that guides stakeholders through your process, extends understanding of your conclusions, and provokes questions and ideas that pave the way for future evaluation and change.


You have already drafted an executive summary to use as an introduction to your final narrative.


Complete your presentation by adding 10 to 15 slides that are designed to summarize the data you will collect. Use the outline that you prepared last week to map how you will communicate results. Also, take some time to consider a spectrum of responses given a variety of outcomes. In this way, you will be prepared for different reactions.

  • Show the relationship between the goals and objectives of both the program and your proposed evaluation.
  • Prepare slides in which you address the following:
  • Results and recommendations welcomed by stakeholders
  • Neutral results and recommendations
  • Results and recommendations unwelcomed by stakeholders
  • Include in your speaker notes details of how you will use the contingency planning you mapped in this week’s discussion.


Format your PowerPoint® presentation to ensure the slides only contain essential information and as little text as possible. Do not design a slide made up of long bullet points. Your speaker notes convey the details you would give if you were presenting.


For help, consult the guide on how to create speaker notes from Microsoft®.

  • Include comprehensive speaker notes.


Cite at least 2 peer-reviewed or similar references to support your assignment.


Include a slide with APA-formatted references.


Submit your assignment.


Finally, prepare a 350-word summary document that your stakeholders can take with them and review. In this document, offer a concise review of the work you have done:

In general, evaluation questions fall into these groups:

  • Implementation: How and when will the evaluation take place?
  • Effectiveness: Define evidence of evaluation quality and achievement.
  • Efficiency: Summarize use of resources: time, human, and financial.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: How will the value or benefit of evaluating the program to target improvement exceed the cost of maintaining the status quo?
  • Attribution: How will progress on goals and objectives identified in your evaluation be shown to be related to program improvements, as opposed to other things that are going on at the same time?


Cite a minimum of 3 peer-reviewed or similar sources to support your assignment.


Format your executive summary according to APA guidelines.

Interpreting Results

You decide to prepare a set of report documents that will be completed concurrently and after the implementation of your evaluation. You decide to add these forms to the memo you drafted in Wk 3 – Design Evaluation. Your intention is to receive feedback on reporting expectations so that the task force can participate in steering the evaluation.


Given the definition and design of your evaluation, prepare a 525- to 700-word report template that will objectively communicate data, interpretations, conclusions, and recommendations.


Develop your hypothesis statement for presentation.

  • What information from the textbook, assignments, and discussions are relevant to the problems you are addressing in your evaluation?
  • What theory and calipers provided background information about the problem(s)?
  • What actors and variables are you including in your evaluation?
  • Which will change?
  • Which will remain the same?
  • What is your hypothesis?
  • What areas are vulnerable to bias and risk misinterpretation?

PrograCite at least 3 peer-reviewed or similar references to support your assignment.
