Scenarid Evaluation Plan Scenario Evaluation Plan University of Phoenix HSM 270 ScenaricZ Evaluation Plan When evaluating the Santa Rosa Philharmonic Youth Symphony it is important to look at the processes the program plan is going through to make sure they will be effective Does the program provide a certain number of days and hours per day the students can practice together How many teachers are dedicating their after school time to better the student s talents Questions like these will draw out quantitative and qualitative data and allow the evaluator to document whether or not the program is appropriate and acceptable for the community and also if it is working hard enough to get the desired results in the end To determine whether the program is making any process it is important to evaluate the staff by seeing how often they meet how many staff members are new and to what extent they are trained and whether or not they are prepared for the curriculum of the program s plans Process evaluations are taken care of through staff interviews questionnaires and other surveys The process evaluation of the Santa Rosa Philharmonic Youth Symphony keeps a close eye on the staff and what they are doing to better the music careers for their young musicians how the community is responding to the time dedicated to the new program and at the same time keeping the project s goals objectives and cost analysis in mind To make sure the Symphony passes all outcome evaluations it is important to make sure the programs are all dedicated to a strong outcome of a strong symphony that is well practiced performs well and receives community appreciation The outcomes of the music programs need to focus on the support of the community and whether they were affected by the powerful movement of the symphony whether every supporter in the community was able to enjoy the Scenarir3 Evaluation Plan performances and whether or not the program is capable of replicating another program for the community to enjoy To achieve success in evaluating the Youth Symphony I believe the evaluations should both be internal and external I think an empowerment evaluation would be the best for the symphony because their ratings are based on performances and community involvement I think when an insider is focusing their time and dedication to better the performance of a student they will understand firsthand the improvement of the individual However since the evaluation is of the entire program and not solely focused on one individual I believe it is more effective to get an outside evaluation done An outside evaluator is less likely to be sensitive to feelings of the people because they are less personally connected to them and therefore are less sensitive to hurting the feelings of the program An outsider can provide critical instructional feedback to allow the program room for growth and improvement A few ways the empowerment evaluations would work could be that the students would be given handouts to take home to their parents to evaluate their child s recent behavioral performing and academic performances Using people who are close to the program are helpful and it is a good idea because they know inside information and they are familiar with how everything works However I think that if you decide to do an internal evaluation it is important to evaluate the staff first to make sure they are not going to be corrupt in their analysis People take great personal offense to their programs and if you ask them to find out the problems with their program they may not provide you with the full honest truth Scenarid Evaluation Plan With that being said I believe an external evaluator would be better suited for the program I believe the evaluator should focus on giving an projectwide evaluation because the evaluation includes the big picture and the big idea Since the main idea of the program is to get the children to perform and receive recognition for their performances it is important to take a step back and see if the performances are reaching maximum potential All the questions of the evaluators will be focused on the big picture and overlook the minor details Since evaluations are important and can only go one way I believe it would be important for the staff to focus more on the objectiveoriented goals than the evaluators Since the evaluators are looking to see if the objectives and goals have been met it is the job of the staff to make sure the accomplishments are being met by reinforcing rewards to their students when they accomplish an objective I believe a good way to measure performance in a student is to have a chair tryout every week to determine which students are practicing their hardest and which students deserve to sit at the front of the row and become leaders I also think that reinforcing good behavior with fun music reward days would be a good treat for the hard work of the young students
