Throughout this module emphasis was placed on the kinds of study design and implementation features that need to be addressed in developing or critiquing an intervention or evaluation research study. Topics related to study approach, study design, measurement, and participants were reviewed from what you learned in our prior course and expanded in terms of their relevance to research for understanding social work interventions. Planning for and assessing intervention fidelity was a major new theme in this module. Sources of data, data collection strategies, and ten strategies for quantitative designs in intervention and evaluation research were other major new areas of content. Mastering the contents of this module prepares you for the next module, how data from intervention and evaluation research might be analyzed.
