NPMG 6480 - Applied Research and Evaluation Methods♦


(5 cr.) Organizational credibility, community trust, and fundraising are increasingly dependent upon demonstration of program effectiveness and success. This course introduces research and evaluation methods in the public and nonprofit sectors. Students examine the strengths, limitations, and threats to validity; models, quantitative metrics, and tools used to evaluate programs and policies; and legal and ethical issues associated with research and evaluation methods. Students are asked to critically evaluate sample research, using these parameters.  
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
