The NTSC has developed
a 9-step process for conducting program evaluations, in 16
teaching modules. Career development professionals can use
this model to educate themselves on program evaluation, or
to train others.
As the graphic below illustrates, the 9-step process encompasses
four stages: planning, development, implementation and feedback.
