Addressing the Challenges of Systems Change Evaluation: Tools for Assessment

Existing definitions and models of systems change are reviewed, and practical challenges of systems change evaluation will be discussed. Meta-evaluation information will be used to identify the kinds of changes that occur when systems change efforts have been successful.Finally, efforts to assess within the context of ongoing systems change evaluation projects are discussed, and the use of a new assessment tool is introduced. Information from the fields of developmental disabilities, education, and substance abuse will be used as examples #ResearchonEvaluation #Systems #2009Conference #SystemsinEvaluation #Evaluation2009 #TheoriesofEvaluation #Change #efforts #HowTo #evaluating

Eval11 Session 361: A Logic Model Framework for Programs with Systems Change Intents

Recently, strands of several frameworks have been combined into a global logic model framework to guide systemic change efforts. These include: a) The Route to Success framework (PADDC, 2009) for effecting systems change that includes improving the knowledge base, selecting social strategies, engaging stakeholders, supporting policy entrepreneurs, and using unexpected events (or “tipping points”); b) a model for change (Newman & Lobosco, 2008) that identifies four domains of successful systems change–policies and procedures, infrastructure, design and delivery of services, and expectation of outcomes and experiences; and c) Scheirer’s (2010) delineation of four dimensions of sustainability (individual, organization, community and population) that emphasizes concepts or programmatic philosophy rather than funding. These strands, when braided together, form a logic model framework useful for education and human services programs with systems change intents
