To ensure the success of a program evaluation, a
social worker must generate a specific detailed plan. That plan should
describe the goal of the evaluation, the information needed, and the
methods and analysis to be used. In addition, the plan should identify
and address the concerns of stakeholders. A social worker should present
information about the plan in a manner that the stakeholders can
understand. This will help the social worker receive the support
necessary for a successful evaluation.
