Learning & Growing Through Evaluation: State Asthma Program Evaluation Guide (Module 1)
CDC’s National Asthma Control Program and state asthma programs are mobilizing resources to reduce the burden of asthma in communities. This step-by-step guide is intended for use by state and territorial public health departments, and groups that focus on improving asthma management practices. Sound evaluation practices can help ensure that we use those resources effectively and efficiently; that we have a means of demonstrating the value of our programs; and that we are developing a body of knowledge that tells us “what works.” Module 1 of Learning & Growing introduces CDC's Framework for Program Evaluation and focuses on evaluation planning--both strategic evaluation planning for a five year grant cycle as well as individual evaluation planning for a specific evaluation project. Subsequent modules will focus on evaluation implementation.
