Students will learn how to design a program evaluation for education research, grants, school or organizational reform, and/or public policy from an evidence-based perspective. This course will introduce students to the basics of evaluation, including formative and summative evaluation, evaluation standards, various evaluation models and uses of evaluation, and the importance of credible evidence. The course will also explore working with multiple stakeholders and the social, cultural, political, and ethical issues involved with conducting evaluation.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
