Designing and Measuring Outcomes

Designing and Measuring Outcomes

Write a cohesive response that addresses the following:
•    Describe two or three outcomes for your proposed change. For each outcome, describe the evaluation criterion/criteria that is/are measurable.
•    Explain how these outcomes relate to multiple sets of standards, as well as differing groups’ needs and priorities. Why is intra- and interdisciplinary collaboration important as you design these outcomes?
•    How do the measurable outcomes for your proposed change establish accountability for you as a leader?
