This paper is an evaluation design for the program, problem, or policy you selected. Pull together the many elements of this paper into an initial draft or Draft Evaluation Design.
The Draft Evaluation Design should be:
• Thirteen (13) pages in length, double-spaces not including the cover and reference pages
• Use Ten (10) scholarly sources published within the last five years only to support the paper
• Use 7th edition of APA when citing your sources
Include the following in your Draft Evaluation Design:
The program is: “The New Harbour Port Authority in Delaware.”
The problem is: The port authority officers are racially and ethically profiling workers coming onto the docks to work, and Mr. Scott wants to find out if it is accurate and eliminate it.
The research question is: Will the racial and ethnic profiling by the port authority officer contribute to the decrease in the funds for the New Harbor Ports?
The program evaluation: Research in the public sector (formative and midpoint)
The evaluation design is: most appropriate because formative evaluation (also called program monitoring) provides feedback about the operations and processes during the implementation phase. The purpose is to monitor the officers, talk to the workers to see if racial and ethnic profiling was used, and give feedback to Mr. Scott. Another idea would be to have cameras where the officers talk to the workers and survey the workers to see if they are racially and ethically profiled.
However, Mr. Scott can later use midpoint evaluations after discovering who the problem officers were and then focusing on teaching them and using that feedback to adjust how to train the new officers for a safer outcome.
The sampling design is: “Stratified random sample.” They would be collecting data from all the workers turned away from the docks for a week and talking to them afterward to see if they were racially and ethically profiled. It is about twenty workers turned away a day.
The two types of secondary data tools that would be useful for evaluating the racial and ethnic profiling of workers by the port authority officers are done by using quantitative data:
