YOUTHSCAPE DEVELOPMENTAL EVALUATION REPORT

A trek through the YouthScape landscape

Evaluation of YouthScape by Marc Langlois, PhD Candidate (ABD), February, 2010. This report is based on an extensive Developmental Evaluation of YS conducted by a team of five site-based evaluators and myself, Marc Langlois, the Lead Developmental Evaluator (DE). This group of six (with changing membership) learned and worked together in an effort to create a distinct application of Developmental Evaluation for each YS site. As Lead DE my attention has been focused on the overall energy and flow of the project. Attention is given to national decision-making processes, group work, and structural implications. The DE team, by virtue of where team members directed their attention and what and how they shared their observations, also played an intervening role in helping the project meets its objectives.
