Analyzing and interpreting programs is another significant process of program evaluation. Conducting an
evaluation means reviewing all sections starting with the introduction and background of the program to
cultivate a detailed understanding of the program, then understanding the history and learning how it will affect
the target population or community. Analyzing and interpreting the program also leads to developing cohesive
goals and objectives, plus deciphering what to measure, and predicting possible barriers that will preclude a
successful program. Furthermore, this process affords a better understanding of the design strategy and data
collection and analysis.
In this assignment, you will continue working on sections for your final project. You will develop a matrix for this
Using the readings for the week, the South University Online Library, and the Internet for research, select
scholarly references on three public health evaluation programs. You will use these references to support your
responses. These references can be similar to the CDC publication, Introduction to Program Evaluation for
Public Health Programs: A Self-Study Guide.
Be sure to review public health programs in your state and include at least one program that addresses heart
disease that you selected as your main theme or topic throughout the course. Use the following public health
program matrix guide to analyze and interpret the three programs you selected.
