Part 3: Program Effectiveness (20 Points)
Learning Objectives: This part of the assignment will require you to search for, evaluate, read and synthesize peer-reviewed, published research related to your program, or similar programs of the same type.
Getting Started: You should identify sources that provide information about the effectiveness of the program, which will typically include implementation, process and outcome evaluations and agency reports. It is possible that you will not find appropriate sources about your specific program. If this is the case, you should read articles about the type of program you are studying for your profile and apply that information to your program.
Potential Information Sources: Academic journals such as Criminology and Public Policy, Justice Quarterly, Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, Punishment and Society and others as appropriate
Requirements: Write a three-page analysis of what is known about the effectiveness of the program. Does it work, and if so for whom and under what conditions? How does the program advance the goals of justice? Are there problematic aspects of the program? The document should be typed in 12-point font, and double spaced with one-inch margins. Include a minimum of four different sources of information. American Psychological Association (APA) citation standards should be used in the written document, and to compile a list of sources titled References. The reference page does not count toward the page total.
