Evaluation

Agents and Specialists are required to teach and evaluate at least one educational program during the year. Evaluation can be done using a tool provided with the curriculum or designed using information on this site.

Specific subject matter evaluation tools designed for signature programs are available on the each Program Team website.

While there are many theories and models for the study of evaluation, the NDSU Extension Service has adopted the Kirkpatrick Model as its framework for evaluation.

Kirkpatrick Model: 4 levels of Evaluation

Self Study: Evaluating Extension Programs

The following clips were recorded by Dr. Myron Eighmy, Professor in the School of Education at North Dakota State University.

Review each recording and then use the samples provided to draft your evaluation tools.
