πŸ‘‰ EVALUATING EXTENSION PROGRAMMESβœ…

Introduction

Although extension educators, donors and administrators are in favor of evaluating extension programmes, yet the fact remains that most of the people are not enthusiastic to undertake it.

Among the reasons being:

β€’ To mask insecurity, incompetence and inadequacy of our efforts.
β€’ Fear of change that evaluation might precipitate as a result of self protective and defensive.
β€’ The need to avoid embarrassment about potential bad news.
β€’ Evaluation is often an additional workload to an already heavy or almost impossible workload.

Similarly, there have been certain myths that have often discouraged extension managers from engaging themselves in useful evaluation.

These include:
β€’ Evaluate only when mandated. Many funded programmes require evaluation as a form of accountability and as a result it becomes a myth that evaluation should take place only if it is mandated. Evaluation is more than just accountability.
β€’ Evaluation is an add-on activity. In reality it should be part and parcel of the programme.
β€’ Evaluation is an activity for experts. Yes when complex methods are used. However, there are many ways of doing evaluation for the purposes of improving delivery which do not need experts.
β€’ Outside evaluators are the best. Not always. Yes, external objective evaluators are often useful in challenging insiders to address certain issues that they tend to overlook because of their involvement in the programme.
β€’ There is one best evaluation approach. Different approaches are better depending on the issue to be evaluated as well as the prevailing situation.
β€’ Quantitative data are the best. Combining qualitative and quantitative methods can lead to better understanding of certain phenomena.

WHAT IS EVALUATION?

β€’ Evaluation basically means passing judgement on something according to a given criterion.
β€’ With respect to education (which extension is part) Ralph Tylor has defined evaluation as being:
The process of determining to what extent the educational objectives are actually being realised by the curriculum (programme) and instruction.

In this case the criteria are the educational objectives which were set in advance.

β€’ A more general and all inclusive definition of evaluation was suggested by Wilbur Harris as:-

The SYSTEMATIC process of judging the worthiness, desirability, effectiveness, or adequacy of something according to definite CRITERIA and PURPOSES

Out of Harris definition three important points emerge:

(1) Evaluation is purposeful and is not done for the sake of it. The way evaluation is conducted must reflect the reason for carrying out that evaluation.

(2) The process of evaluation involves three elements :
(a) Criteria
(b) Evidence
(c) Judgement

Criteria

- are a standard of what is acceptable.
β€’ Thus, a criterion can be an expectation or a laid down rule which is used as a reference point.
e.g. A farmer is expected to know how to apply sulphate of ammonia by the end of a demonstration.
β€’ Criteria help us to make various decisions or judgements.
β€’ There can be various criteria on the same process.
β€’ Hence, it is important to agree with all categories of people involved in the programme as to which criteria are going to be used in making evaluation.
β€’ This will help to have the same logical judgements, since your views will be based on the same criteria.
β€’ Also in that way you can make relevant improvements in the programme.
Objective (based on certain rules)
Criteria can be or
Subjective (based on ones value judgement)
β€’ In most cases it is better to use objective criteria to avoid one’s biases.
β€’ However, practically speaking, it is very difficult to completely wipe out some elements of subjectivity in your criteria.

Evidence

β€’ Is all information (data) you have which will be used for comparison to the criteria.
β€’ There must be some kind of measurements in order to get the information (data).
β€’ Measurement – is a process of assigning symbols to the information but which a defining the quantity or quality.

Measurement scales include:
o nominal
o ordinal
o interval
o ratio

β€’ Sources of evidence
(i) records (e.g. farm records)
(ii) observation
(iii) Surveys (e.g. interviews using questionnaires) etc.

Judgement

β€’ Basically means coming up with some conclusions about the programme based on criteria and evidence.

That is to say:
β€’ if you have the standards (criteria),
β€’ and you have the evidence (observations & measurements),
β€’ then you can compare to see which evidences have met the standards and which have not.

Objective judgement – are judgments made based on empirical evidence.
Subjective judgement – are judgements made based on personal biases.

(3) Evaluation is systematic rather than a haphazard process.

i.e. Depending on the purpose there must be:
o careful selection of criteria
o accurate observations and measurement
o careful comparison (observation Vs criteria),
before making judgements and recommendations.

Evaluation is the process by which the effectiveness of extension is assessed. It is more than simply finding out what happened; it involves passing judgement on what happened. Was the outcome of the programme good enough? Was it better or worse than expected? Could more have been achieved?

Why evaluation

Extension programmes are evaluated to
(a) ascertain for the extension organization how well agents perform, so that their suitability for promotion may be assessed;
(b) satisfy the government that public money spent on extension is being used effectively; and
(c) permit the agent to learn from what has happened.

Evaluation is a waste of time unless the results have an influence on future extension decisions.

Agents should, therefore, ask questions about the following aspects of the programme:

Results: What happened as a result of the- extension programme? Were they the results that were expected, and were there any unexpected results?

Inputs: Were all the planned inputs available and, if not, why?

Levels of evaluation

β€’ There are several levels of evaluation of extension programmes. At the most general level, the effect of extension on agricultural production, family incomes and standards of living can be evaluated
β€’ However, extension is not the only factor that leads to higher production and living standards; changes in prices and in the availability of inputs are two of the many additional factors that affect the level of crop and of livestock production
β€’ He/she should also observe who is benefiting from extension. Is a broad cross-section of the farming population sharing the benefits, for example, or do one or two particular groups benefit most?
β€’ Did the extension activities take place in the planned sequence and at the right time?
β€’ Did these activities lead to the expected results?
β€’ Finally, the agent can evaluate at the level of each extension activity. All extension activities, such as demonstrations, talks or meetings with a farmers' group, have a purpose. The agent should try to check, wherever possible, not only how well the activity itself was conducted but whether the purpose was achieved.
β€’ At all levels of evaluation, the agent needs to collect information to compare the situation after the activity with the situation existing before.
β€’ Some effects can be assessed much sooner than others. Immediately after a public meeting, for example, the agent can talk to a few members of the audience and check how clearly they understood what he was saying. Changes in behaviour, on the other hand, will not happen at once and the agent must wait before checking these.

There are several ways of collecting information for evaluation at the village level.

Agent's reports: Whether or not a formal report of each extension activity is required from agents by their extension officers, the agent should make some notes on each activity for his own use, concentrating on his conduct of the activity and on points to note for future occasions.
Supervisors: It is not easy for an agent to assess how well he/she conducts an extension activity; in particular, he cannot see himself/herself through the eyes of the farmers who attend. It is useful, therefore, to have constructive comments from a supervisor or colleague.
Discussions: Informal discussion with farmers after the extension activity will reveal their immediate reactions. It is often useful to record such discussions using a tape recorder for later transcription and fuller analysis.
Questionnaires: Simple check-lists and questionnaires can be used when the agent has the time and opportunity to carry out a more formal evaluation of extension activities
Observation: Where changes in farming practice are concerned, observation is an accurate source of information. The agent can see whether or not his advice is being adopted on farms in the area.
β€’ Many extension organizations have their own formal procedures for evaluation
β€’ Whatever the formal procedures in a particular organization, however, the agent should think of evaluation as an attitude of mind. He/she should develop a readiness to ask what happened, why it happened and how it could be done better in the future. In this way, he/she will continue to learn and improve his/her extension work.

THE PROCESS OF EVALUATION

Involves certain sequential steps:

(1) You have to decide on what to evaluate
(2) Then set the criteria or standards
(3) Make observations and measurements
(4) Compare observations to criteria
(5) Make judgements and recommendations

However, the evaluation process is a cyclical one, or in other words is a continuous process since you have to make an evaluation of what you decided to implement as improvements following the previous evaluation.

WHY EVALUATE

In other-words we are asking ourselves why evaluation should be part and parcel of the programme development.

(1) To improve existing programmes and to form a basis for planning future Programmes.

(2) To determine programme effectiveness and efficiency.

β€’ Since resources are limited, programmes have to be implemented as efficiently as possible. The rate of efficiency of a programme offers a basis for either modifying or completely abandoning a program.

β€’ It also helps to tell whether the set targets have been reached or not.

(3) Accountability

When resources are very limited it becomes necessary to justify the expenditure on a particular programme. It is only through evaluation that you can justify this.

(4) To assess external factors that can affect the implementation, especially factors that cannot be identified in advance.

β€’ Without evaluation you cannot tell which extra factors affected the programme and which ones for example forced the modification of the programme implementation.

(5) Evaluation is important as a learning process.

β€’ While evaluating you can learn new principles or techniques.
β€’ You can test new programming models to see how they work.
β€’ In doing so you generate knowledge that can be used in future by yourself or others who will have shared your experiences.

(6) Generally we can say evaluation sets a basis for our future decisions in all facets of the programme.

Conclusion

There are at least five major elements in most evaluations:

1. Focus questions
2. Objects or events to be evaluated
3. Data or evidence
4. Analysis and interpretation using judgement perspective.
5. Judgements, conclusions or findings.
NOTE: Purpose and approaches/models will differ or may vary, but these elements will be present in one form or the other.

πŸ“Œ Tips of being yourself

Who Are You? There's no possible way you can be yourself without knowing who you really are. You pretend to idolize football player David Beckham because your neighbor does and you want to gain his approval. Soon enough you will realize that you don't know what interests you because you've been whiling away time with what least interests you. Understand yourself, figure out where your deepest passion lies and be proud of your qualities. Contemplate your life and the choices you've made. Take personality tests and you will eventually disentangle the buried mesh of what had been your true interests and hobbies all along! Accept it with pride! Forget The World! So what if the person besides you passed a nasty comment on your outfit. As long as you're comfortable, does it really make a difference to your welfare? Or do you hesitate to raise your hand in class to ask the question that's persistently been pestering you simply because you fear your classmates might find it silly and doubt your intelligence. Why is their opinion even worth it? You should feel stupid for putting their opinions before your clarity on the subject! Forget the world, live your life and be yourself. Happiness will be right behind you! Breathe & Be Honest Why do you want to live through the rest of your life safeguarding your sticky web of lies? Life is never rosy for anybody. Maybe at the beginning, you might not be as fortunate as certain other coveted beings. Nevertheless, if you hold your breath and take each day as it comes, life's delicate balance will soon manifest itself. There is no good reason to be ashamed of who you are. Whether it's a physical or mental shortcoming, the most trusted way to overcoming it is by acknowledging it with courage. We are all blighted with flaws and by hiding them, we are only adding to that list! Express Your Individuality The moment self-confidence is on your side, a beautiful and unique personality will blossom! Standing out isn't easy but it usually comes from within. It might be a skill, or a manner of speaking or infectious charisma. Build up on a character that singles you out from everybody in your planet. Be yourself. Even oddly colored slippers might accentuate your eccentric character after which you might garner admiration from different sides. Don't be a prototype, be a proud unique individual. Believe In Yourself Take off that hideous mask and unleash the beauty hidden underneath its eternal ugliness! If you try to be what you're not, you're going to be unhappy through the remainder of your fake life. Thrive on solitude, engage in soul searching and you will soon be well acquainted with your new best friend- The Real You. Life will soon turn into a elongated party interspersed with memorable episodes of sadness, joy, laughter, bitterness and all the emotions experienced in the life that is worth living!….continuing....

A How to achieve goals

Set Goals First list down all the goals that you want to accomplish. If you are not sure what you want in life, you are just bound to receive the unexpected. Nevertheless, bear in mind that goals should always be sensible and should be accomplishable. Setting unrealistic goals are of no use. Write the most important goals at the top of the list and number them accordingly. This will help you to focus more precisely. You can strike off each goal once it is accomplished. Writing down your goals will also help you to realize your priorities. Develop Strategies To Achieve Goals Once you have listed your goals, you need to evaluate and develop strategies to complete your goals. For example, if your goal is to shed some extra pounds, your broad strategy should be dieting and exercises. Nothing can be achieved straightforwardly in life. So, you need a particular strategy and dedication to pull off your goals. Have Definite Action Plans Once your broad line of attack is determined, work on your definite action plans. For instance, if dieting and exercising are your broad strategies to your weight loss goal, then your action plan should consist of a healthy diet chart; a healthy way of life, and an appropriate workout routine. Believe In Yourself If you want to accomplish your goals and become successful in life, you have to believe in yourself. All successful men and women today are doing well because they believed in themselves and were confident about their capabilities. If you believe in yourself, then you can accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. Review Your Progress Make sure you are making progress. Review your progress every week to analyze how far you have reached in accomplishing your goals. If you find you are lagging behind, hire a coach, look for help from family and friends, and above all, try to recognize why your goal is not being met. Find a solution to accomplish your goal. Be Self Motivated Self motivation is a must to achieve goals and success in life. Motivational books and CDs are great ways to keep you motivated and will help you to stay focused towards your goals. The more self motivated you are, the easier it is to work towards your objectives…..continuing....

A To learn how to love yourself

Accept Your Personality Your life has not ended yet. You still have plenty of years to live. Hence, it's never too late to improve or develop yourself throughout your life. However, it is best if you accept yourself for whom you are. Be happy and celebrate your unique qualities and characteristics. After all, you are a unique individual created from God's own hands. Be Happy With Your Body Size Both men and women are often too conscious about their physical appearance, especially when they see a well-toned and figured person crossing their way. In case of women, some feel that their breasts are just too small, while there are others who feel they have heavy butt. Men, on the other hand, feel inferior to those who are well built or have a great muscular body. For all such gentlemen and ladies, remember that we are not produced from a single factory. Each one of us is different; hence, it is better if you accept, or rather love, your physical appearance. Built Confidence No person is born with natural confidence. It is the upbringing and your surroundings that help you develop poise and self-confidence. Children who are taught to become self independent from an early age have greater level of confidence than those who look up to their parents for every knick and knack. Start revealing a positive attitude and a feeling of self assurance and see how confidence comes natural to you in no time. Find Out Your Good Qualities And Achievements Looking out for some good qualities in yourself? Were you not able to find any? Does that make you hate yourself further? Why? Aren't you a homosapien? Just like every person has some negative attributes, so does he have positive characteristics as well. It is good to criticize your self but then do not be over critical. Accept your flaws and try to come over them. As for your positives, just keep on bettering them and who knows you might be able to love yourself all the more. Stop Regretting On Your Mistakes So, you have committed a mistake? So what? It's just a mistake. No one is going to beat or punish you to death. Making mistakes is natural to any human being. So stop beating or cursing yourself over and over again. Instead, sit down and analyze your mistakes. Take positive lessons from them and find out what different you can do next time to avoid these stupid and silly errors. Forget the past and plan the future. Don't Let Others Dominate You Sad but true, often people treat you like a doormat simply because you allow them to do so. It's your life and no one has the right to control or rule it, except you. So stop being too kind and generous when a friend constantly borrows money from you with no promises of repaying it back. Stand up and dump that guy who calls and looks up to you only for sex and nothing else. Remember, do not let anyone treat you badly because you deserve better than being only used or criticized…..continuing....

A How to be charismatic

Relax Your Way To The Top If you are looking to be charismatic, then the first and foremost thing that you have to do is to actually learn to relax. Some people try too hard to be charismatic, but only end up making a fool of themselves. This is not something that you would want to do. So, in order to work on your charisma, learn from the mistakes of others and relax. When you master the art of relaxing in a social setting, you automatically exude charisma. It's a known fact that people love to be around people who are calm and composed. Learn to channelize peace and tranquility to everyone you know and meet. This will help you seem extremely calm and a lot more attractive. With a personality of this sort, apart from wanting to be with you, people may even aspire to be like you. Confidence Concerns While being confident can be easily mistaken for being charismatic, there is a very distinct difference between being confident and being charismatic. Charisma is that quality that makes you seem like you have an extremely attractive personality, and confidence is that quality that adds to your charisma. Appearing confident can make you seem extremely charismatic, because your confidence apart from acting like a magnet will also help put the others around you at ease and create in them a desire to be around you. Here, however, you will have to take a lot of care to stay away from going overboard, because while confidence is one thing, overconfidence is a different thing altogether and it's that one quality that no one can really be fond of. Dish Out Attention In order to seem charismatic, it is important to listen and pay attention. When you manage to do this your charisma quotient automatically reaches new heights. You can pull off attention tactics by simply listening to what people have to tell you and talk as less as possible. However, when you actually do talk, make sure you talk sense and make sure the words that are coming out of your mouth are the kind of words that the other person would want to listen to. Make it a point to smile while you are talking. This will help add quite a lot of appeal to your personality. Be Considerate You are truly a considerate person when you treat others around you just the way you would want to be treated. You wouldn't want to be discriminated against under any grounds, so then there is no reason why you should treat one person differently from the other. Exercise this behavior pattern in your day-to-day life and watch how people are attracted to you like bees are to honey…..continuing....

A Ways of how not to argue

Enhance your listening skills. It will make you less defensive and allow you to analyze the statement of other person deeply. You should listen to the other person with patience and give a logical approach to the same. Let the other person complete what he/she wants to say. Once he/she is done, give your feedback. This would allow both of you to lay forward your view point. However, make sure that whatever is said is logical and pertains to the present situation.n Never think that you are always right. If people have been correcting you time and again, know that there is some problem which lies inside you. Accept that you have a problem of arguing on small issues and work on it to exclude the same from your behavior. Accepting your weakness will strengthen your relationship. Also, ask them to help you come out of the problem. Inculcate understanding in yourself. Instead of thinking about your own issues, try to understand the other person's views, feelings, state of mind, etc. This will help you to talk calmly and make the relationship a strong one. After understanding the other person, your approach will not be illogical or defensive. The feedback will be based on the feelings of both the people and not only yours. Introspect yourself and increase your self control power. Also, be aware of the place and people around before heading towards an argument. A couple must never involve in the argument in front of their children. It may have a bad impact on them. Respect each other to share great relationship. Similarly, indulging in a heated argument in a public place such as a mall or cinema hall would make people think of you as uncivilized. Be positive in your thinking. It will exclude negativity from inside and you will have a healthy approach towards any issue. If you have positive nature, you will never get involved in any kind of argument. Do not make excuses and be truthful. Improve yourself rather than giving explanation all the time…..continuing....
