Design Evaluation of the Draft Policy on Community Colleges


The main purpose of this evaluation is to assess the relevance and appropriateness of the draft PCC, with a particular focus on its fitness for purpose, its internal and external coherence, and its readiness to be implemented.
The timing of the evaluation coincided with the release of the draft PCC for public comment.
The findings of the evaluation were intended to feed directly into the policy refinement process. The draft PCC was finally only released in November 2014, instead of the anticipated date of July, which meant that this final report was not complete prior to the refinement process. However Stakeholder Meetings and a presentation to DHET officials in February and March, 2015 provided the findings to DHET to include in the refinement.
