Abstract
As Extension programming moves from deficit-based program models which focus on what people do not possess to identifying and mobilizing strengths, the difficulties and dilemmas related to documenting program effectiveness remain. In many cases, research that would lead to such documentation is viewed as an obstacle rather than an asset. This paper highlights key issues pertaining to evaluation of community-based programs for children, youth, and families; discusses challenges common to Extension educators and program evaluators; and cites common misunderstandings of the evaluation process.
