Abstract that has had little to no evaluation and measurement. However, with limited state resources to be distributed to departments, it is imperative that programs be able to justify their existence. Due to this fact, I chose to evaluate the CAP for my capstone project. Because inadequate data on outcomes is available at this time, I was unable to conduct a traditional summative evaluation or include any statistical analysis. Instead I chose to conduct a formative, or process, evaluation that would allow me to utilize the mostly qualitative data available for the program. The majority of this qualitative data is derived from internal program documents, a very small survey the program conducted twice in 2007, a logic model developed by program staff, comparison with benchmark states, and communication with relevant professionals. The major research questions to be answered include: What outputs have been produced by the program? How does Kentucky compare to its surrounding states? Do relevant professionals view the program as a success? Is the program being implemented as it was intended?
