16th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
February 26-28, 2017 • Atlanta, GA
2/26/2017 | 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Logic Models, Performance Measures and Metrics - An Interactive Workshop Using Key Evaluation Tools to Improve Strategic Planning for EHDI | Hanover E
Evaluation – what associations does it bring to mind? Do you see evaluation as an invaluable tool to improve your early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) program or an intimidating process because you are not sure what it is or how to use it? Program evaluation has become an essential organizational practice in public health. Program evaluation is “the systematic collection of information about the activities, characteristics, and outcomes of programs to make judgments about the program, improve program effectiveness, and/or inform decisions about future programing” (Patton, 1997). Program evaluation not only improves program design and implementation, but also demonstrates program impact. When programs conduct strong, practical evaluations on a more routine basis, the findings are better positioned to inform management of successes and weaknesses to improve program effectiveness.
This interactive session will include an overview of evaluation and logic model development, discussion of evaluation methods, and exercises utilizing metrics and evaluation to support improvement in the early identification and intervention services for infants and children with hearing loss or hard of hearing. Participants will gain practical experience through a series of exercises involving the conceptual design of a logic model and evaluation plan, identifying and developing measures to determine success, and data analysis of early identification and intervention services for infants and children with hearing loss or hard of hearing.
- Understand the key concepts of evaluation and logic model development.
- Explain the purpose and value of different types of evaluation in the early hearing detection and intervention of infants and children with hearing loss or hard of hearing.
- Utilize metrics and evaluation to support improvement in the early identification and intervention services for infants and children with hearing loss or hard of hearing.
