Learning Goal: I’m working on a public health question and need guidance to help me learn.GROUP ASSIGNMENT 1: Evaluation & Assessment Planning Points Possible: 5Note: Program evaluation is an ever-evolving process. Describing the following components will help center where your evaluation is going (i.e., this is the beginning of your roadmap). It’s okay if these slightly change over the next few weeks, but every week you should be getting closer and closer to a “final” evaluation plan (e.g., your final paper / report).Planning your Evaluation:Theoretical Community Partner and Priority Population (1 point):
