Methods

The community bookshop and café is a community organized program whose methods of evaluation require dynamic and ongoing community participation. With the assistance of CSC an empowerment evaluation model will be outlined and offered to the senior community. Within the empowerment evaluation model, a process evaluation will undertake documentation and monitoring of the implementation of the proposed interventions and activities (Yuen & Terao, 2003, "Chapter 7, pg. 103"), and an outcome evaluation providing “data to assess the outcome and overall impact of the proposed project.” (Yuen & Terao, 2003, "Chapter 7, pg. 106")
The perspective of CSC is to ensure the senior community bookshop and café program is honoring equal opportunities, operating in a fair and inclusive manner, and is addressing and resolving issues pertaining to the community participants of the bookshop and café program. For this purpose a questionnaire will be prepared by two designated CSC managers and distributed to all seniors involved in the community. An open door policy within CSC will also be employed to enable seniors to discuss in private any matter they feel is of concern. This will be the only instance in any evaluations in which CSC will have direct feedback from the senior community. The requirement of this feedback is necessitated for ensuring confidence in the management of the community bookshop and café program, and ensuring the desired outcomes of the community bookshop and café are on target.
