Questions & Answers Tools for Self-Evaluation Q This has been a very successful and event-filled year for our student council. Our council members have been committed to meeting their council responsibilities, and many went the extra mile to see that projects and events were successful. I would like to have the council participate in an evaluation exercise during one of our last meetings. I know how I want to run the exercise, but am in need of evaluative content questions to use. A Evaluation is an important part of any planning process. Many people think of evaluation as simply pointing to the success or failure of a program. If conducted properly, an evaluation can do much more than merely answer "what happened?" Used as an ongoing process, it can help determine the strengths and weaknesses of a program or group and focus attention on needed improvements. The progress of the group is measured by the changes and growth that have taken place in the actions, skills, and knowledge of members. In addition to evaluating individual council activities and events, it is important that councils look back in a broader way at their years and use the results to make improvements and direct planning for the coming year. Creating an evaluation instrument begins with identifying the activities and aspects of the student council for which you would like to have feedback, determining how to collect and synthesize it, and then deciding how to report and use the findings. The sample questions on the following page can be used by advisers as models for building evaluation questions and topics. may 2015 5
