PUAD 6520  - 
Programme Evaluation Seminar 

Dalhousie University 



This class is focused on the construction of different types of evaluation frameworks for a set of government programmes or initiatives. Students prepare a plan of how to evaluate their program of choice giving special attention to perspective taken and stakeholder interests, students identify relevant data sources, and data collection instruments and design a research framework that combines qualitative and Quantitative approaches. Specific research skills acquired in PUAD 5140 and PUAD 5180, are applied to a broader and large scale evaluation framework. In addition, students are exposed to competing approaches to programme evaluation, as well as ethical issues within the discipline. Student presentations and class discussion are an integral part of the class.
