Using Table 7.2 (Royse, et al., p.200) as a guide, develop a similar table using the research articles on NEP/SEP provided for the program evaluation assignments (there are 7). Find and add at least one additional NEP/SEP research article to the research articles covered to this point in the course (should be a minimum of 8 research articles entries).
Guidance for Creating the Table:
Column 1: name of the author[s].
Cloumn 2: Title of the article (include the citation here but without the authors' names).
Column 3: Research Question: Provide the research question for each article.
Column 4: Most important finding. Be clear and concise with the findings
Submit by the Program Evaluation Assignment 5 due date one page (single spaced) memo addressed to the instructor of this course. The purpose of the memo is to explain the current state of research on NEP/SEP programs and recommend a future direction. The memo will include these sections:
Executive Summary: In three concise sentences, identify the problem/topic/issue to be reviewed, why it is a problem/topic/issue based on previous research, and the next step or the action you want the reader to take. Identify a specific problem/topic/issue that was not directly addressed by the reviewed research.
Problem Statement: What is the most important part of the NEP/SEP program that needs further evaluation? Explain. Use the reviewed research to summarize what we know, what we do not know, and the specific problem/topic/issue to be addressed.
Background: Referencing only the research questions from the table in the appendix, describe the focus of the current research on NEP/SEP programs. Use the Background section to introduce the problem/topic/issue to be addressed.
Findings: Referencing only the findings from the table in the appendix, describe what has been learned about NEP/SEP program effectiveness. How do the findings inform the problem/topic/issue you are addressing?
Recommendation: What evaluation strategy would you recommend following to address the identified problem/topic/issue? Explain.
