Create Table


 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.
