Describe the program evaluation theory base connected to the proposed methodology

The literature review is an opportunity for you to accomplish two main objectives: establish a theoretical framework for your program evaluation and survey current literature to determine the best methodology and approach for your program evaluation. Prior to implementing a program evaluation, it is essential to review current scholarly literature to ensure that your approach to addressing your problem statement is sound and supported by research. You may need to alter your methodology or approach following the literature review.
By successfully completing this assignment, you demonstrate your proficiency in the following competency and specialized behaviors:
Competency 4: Engage in practice-informed research and research-informed practice.

C4.SP.A: Apply leadership skills, decision making, and the use of technology to inform evidence-based research practice to develop, implement, evaluate, and communicate interventions across the specialization of advanced generalist practice settings.

Related Assignment Criteria:

4. Create a selective summary of empirical literature.
2. Assess the guiding practice theory base connected to the described problem.
1. Analyze the problem presented in the case study.

C4.SP.B: Apply leadership skills, decision making, and the use of technology to inform program evaluation to develop, implement, evaluate, and communicate interventions across the specialization of advanced generalist practice settings.

Related Assignment Criteria:

3: Describe the program evaluation theory base connected to the proposed methodology.
5: Develop a problem statement and guiding research question for the program evaluation.

An organization called The Durante Foundation values education and wants to fund an educational community grant to enhance graduation rates. The foundation needs to understand the central tendencies for education levels of individuals within the community. A survey was taken of individuals, ages 24–35, to determine years of completed formal education. The foundation is requesting the mean, median, and mode values for grades of educational attainment within the community. Use the Unit 3 Dataset, given in the resources, to complete this assignment. (13–20 equates to years in college.)
Assignment Instructions
Respond to the following prompts in a one-page, APA-formatted paper:
State the following values (from the JASP output table):

Mean.
Median.
Mode (or modes).
Standard deviation.

Interpret the data displayed in the output table. Which measure of central tendency is the most appropriate statistic to summarize these data and why?
Provide a narrative summary to the Durante Foundation that would include the mean, mode, and median values and your interpretation of that data. Include implications of the findings for the foundation’s future funding priorities.
Additional Requirements
Your assignment should meet the following requirements:
Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and formatting standards.
Length of paper: One double-spaced page.
Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.
Resources
Measures of Central Tendency and Standard Deviation Scoring Guide.
Unit 3 Dataset [JASP].

Is Multisystematic therapy (theory) effective in treating victims of child maltreatment

Social Work practitioners can no longer rely on their desire to help as the major criterion for the effectiveness of their interventions. It is imperative that we are able to demonstrate that our interventions are effective for a particular problem and person. One of the ways to evaluate the effectiveness of a given theory or model of intervention is to evaluate its use with various types of clients, e.g. children, adolescents, adults, the aged, et. al. in order to alleviate specific problems. Take one of the theories being studied throughout the program, and find some of the research that studies the effectiveness of using this theory with a particular problem or child welfare population.
Topic: Is Multisystematic therapy (theory) effective in treating victims of child maltreatment (particular problem or child welfare population)?
This assignment does not require a complete review of all the studies that have been conducted on a specific theory (or one of its concepts) but rather asks that you find several studies, summarize these, and then make some evaluative comments based on your reading of the literature. (a study’s methodology and findings are important aspects to consider). You may find that there is little data to support a claim of effectiveness or not. That is fine as long as you can support your conclusion. You will need to search not just the social work literature but the psychology, counseling, and psychiatry literature as well. I suggest using the databases of psyc info, med line, and social work research and abstracts for a start.
Since EBP requires the integration of research evidence, clinical expertise, and a client’s values and circumstances, please comment on these aspects of EBP and how they fit or do not fit with the empirical studies you have reviewed. A minimum of 6 peer-reviewed references are required (outside of course material).

Discuss your understanding of the degree to which the etiology and/or prevalence of the child abuse or neglect in question is a function of diversity issues, including disparities and oppression. 

Child welfare services have a primary goal of protecting children from harm and promoting a child’s development to ensure a healthy transition towards adulthood.  However, when considering the historical and contemporary disproportionality of children of color represented within the child welfare systems (i.e., foster care, juvenile justice, etc.), it is important to consider the role of social work in reinforcing or reforming the field of child welfare.
Discuss your understanding of the degree to which the etiology and/or prevalence of the child abuse or neglect in question is a function of diversity issues, including disparities and oppression.  Diversity can pertain to issues relating to race, gender, culture, sexual orientation, and poverty.  Please be sure that you specify which area of abuse/neglect you are addressing regarding diversity issues.
Please be sure that your response addresses 1) the history of social work and its role regarding communities of color, 2) the history of child abuse and neglect/child welfare and its role regarding urban children, youth, and families, 3) ethical practice standards as a social worker and 4) a professional opinion about how to reform child welfare to address the concerns you have identified.
Please note that you should have at least 3 references that are not included within course material integrated as support throughout your answer, as well as support from an ethical code of your choice (i.e., Child Welfare, the National Association of Social Work (NASW Code of Ethics), National Association of Black Social Workers (Code of Ethics) or the International Federation of Social Workers).
