Instructor wants lay out like this:
Respond to at least two colleagues ( 2 peers posts are provided) by doing all of the following:
Identify strengths of your colleagues’ analyses and areas in which the analyses could be improved.
Address his or her evaluation of the efficacy and applicability of the evidence-based practice,
[Evaluate] his or her identification of factors that could support or hinder the implementation of the evidence-based practice,
And [evaluate] his or her solution for mitigating those factors.
Offer additional insight to your colleagues by either identifying additional factors that may support or limit implementation of the evidence-based practice or an alternative solution for mitigating one of the limitations that your colleagues identified.

RE: Discussion – Week 10

post your explanation of which group research design and data collection method from those outlined in the Resources you selected as appropriate for the “Social Work Research: Planning a Program Evaluation” case study and why.
For this assignment, I have chosen the Time-Series Design. I chose this design as it is still a quasi-experimental design but also has several pre-test and post-test outcome measures. It involves obtaining several client outcome measures before the introduction of intervention and several additional measures after the intervention has been implemented (Dudley, 2014). One benefit of this design is the data trends can help determine the extent to which the intervention, as opposed to external outside factors is the “causal agent” (Dudley, 2014).
Then, generate criteria to be measured using the research design by identifying a specific outcome and a method for measuring that outcome. Specify who will collect the data and how the data will be collected.
By using a single system design (SSD) as an evaluation tool to measure whether there is a causal relationship between the practitioner’s intervention and a client’s outcome then adjustments to treatment delivery can be made intermittently prior to termination of services. SSD can be used for either an individual, a family, or a group and uses a graph as a tool to visualize client progress (Dudley, 2014). Having this graph available for the client may be a motivating element in practice.
A goal attainment scale as an evaluation tool for the time series design would be helpful in evaluating the extent to which the worker’s interventions affect client’s goals or outcomes in the way it was intended (Dudley, 2014). By using a 5-point Likert scale to measure with is a non-complicated way to track client progress when using the SSD I have chosen. The researcher in the case study also mentioned using a Likert scale in their study and the use of questionnaires, surveys, and checklists (Plummer, Makris,
