Good evaluation for any program comes from good program planning. The Extension Parenting Evaluation Decision Framework is an interactive program planning tool that allows you to step through a total process. This model is fully detailed in this HTML document titled
Parenting Evaluation Framework.
The total model includes 10 steps. You should plan about 20-30 minutes of time to work through all the steps. The authors of the original document and the creators of this interactive site hope you will find this a learning and thought provoking experience.
Parents have the future in their hands! Planning effective programs for parents will lead to better lives for all children, youth, and families!
