Session Description: In this session, participants will learn different evaluation methodologies for communityassessments and be able to apply multiple approaches to the evaluation of community-based health promotion programs. Among other topics, the course will address:

  • Dr. Goodman’s FORECAST method of evaluating complex community programs, including how to develop models for complex programs and then use them to develop markers, measures, and standards (meanings) for measuring program adequacy.
  • Social ecological perspectives including assessing and determining adequacy of interventions from a social ecology perspective
  • Community capacity, including expanding our perspectives of community capacity within the construct of health promotion, identifying linkages that interconnect to strengthen community capacity, and developing an evaluation approach that assesses the development of community capacity
  • Uncovering “deeper structural meanings” in community responses to evaluation

Robert M. Goodman is a Professor and Dean of the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at Indiana University. Dr. Goodman has written extensively on issues concerning community health development, community capacity, community coalitions, evaluation methods, organizational development, and the institutionalization of health programs.

In 2004, Dr. Goodman received the Distinguished Fellow Award from the Society for Public Health Education, the highest honor it bestows. Currently, Dr. Goodman is consulting on community-based public health practices and empowerment evaluation with the Diabetes Translation and Injury Prevention Branches at CDC.
