Evaluation Project Part 4: Evaluation Methodology

In a 3-page paper, describe the evaluation methodology plan you would use to answer your PICO question. Specify which research design, information sources, and data collection methods you would use. Write a paragraph detailing the “who,” “what,” “when,” “where,” and “how” of your evaluation. Identify the types of analyses you would perform on the gathered data. Justify your selections. Explain the specifics of how you would measure success in your evaluation and how you would summarize your results.
