Each student will demonstrate the mechanics of performing a program or policy evaluation by submitting in writing the structure for conducting such an assessment. The student may select any topic area in the criminal justice system, but not an issue addressed in class or in the course texts. The objective of the paper is for the student to identify one criminal justice problem or issue and using the course concepts, principles, techniques, methods, and knowledge gained from the course, design a program evaluation project. The design will be of a hypothetical condition which will have impact on the criminal justice system. The paper should be developed as a “proposal” of how to perform the assessment and not actually performing the research or the evaluation. The paper may address a criminal justice system-wide problem or a criminal justice agency specific problem. The paper is to be from 18 to 20 pages, using 12 font, Times New Roman, and 1.5 spacing, with 1-inch margins. A separate title and reference pages are to be included (not part of the total page count). A minimum of 12 references are to be integrated into your project and DO NOT INCLUDE THE COURSE TEXTS. Refer to the checklist in the Appendix of the Welsh & Harris text (pp. 255-259) and structure the paper in accordance with the following criteria items: a. Introduction: provide an introductory discussion to the topic being addressed (10%). b. Problem Analysis and Goals and Objectives (Stages 1 & 2): Fully describe the problems surrounding the issue selected and describe the goals and objectives which will be established (20%). c. Link a criminal justice theory to your evaluation project: Provide a thorough literature review which is associated with the problem to a theory (or vice versa) and connect it to the need for the assessment project (a minimum of 12 sources must be used). When citing your work, use the APA citation format and include a reference page, which will not be included in the total page count (10%). d. Project Design and Action Planning (Stages 3 & 4): Fully describe what research design, research methods and strategies will be employed to actually perform the assessment. Describe action planning and based on the nature of proposed project, develop and describe with a narrative a Gnatt Chart in your paper/proposal (20%). e. Program/Policy Implementation/Monitoring (Stage 5): Then completely describe how the program will be implemented, the duration, data collection methods, implementation procedures used, and by what method (s) the program/policy will be monitored. Connect the proposed Gantt chart with the implementation items through a detailed description/discussion (20%). f. Assessment Outcomes (Stage 6): Fully describe the expected outcomes from the assessment, the expected benefits (including any monetary), how the results will be used, the impact of the results and findings, and discuss the appropriate policy implications (10%) g. Conclusion: Provide separate paragraphs with your conclusions (10%).

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (email@example.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
