  • Description:
    In spring 2009, the DNPAO convened 2 meetings of a 32-member evaluation consultation group composed of state health department staff, CDC staff, and professional evaluators. The purpose of the meetings was to gain input into the development of a strategic plan and its implementation for the DNPAO evaluation team. This strategic plan provides the foundation for setting objectives and priorities for the evaluation of the division’s three goal areas (nutrition, physical activity, obesity). The strategic plan also defines how the evaluation team will (1) provide evaluation technical assistance to states; and (2) conduct program evaluation, evaluation research, and program monitoring. The evaluation team’s intention is to continuously create and sustain organizational processes that make quality evaluation and its uses routine. Utilization- Focused Evaluation (UFE) is the evaluation team’s model of practice, and organizational collaboration and participation are strategies adopted to accomplish the evaluation team’s work.

    This is one of three evaluation guides produced as part of a series of technical assistance tools developed by the CDC’s DNPAO for use by state NPAO programs. The documents address developing and using an evaluation consultation group; evaluating state nutrition, physical activity, and obesity plans; and evaluating partnerships. The three initiatives are strategically linked.

    The guides clarify approaches and methods of evaluation, provide examples and tools specific to the scope and purpose of state NPAO programs, and recommend resources for additional reading. The guides are intended to complement each other, offer guidance, and a consistent definition of terms. The guides are also intended to aid in skill-building on a wide range of general evaluation topics, recognizing that state NPAO programs differ widely in their experience and resources for program evaluation. Although the guides were developed for use by state NPAO programs, the information will also benefit other state health department programs, especially chronic disease programs.
