“Did we do the right thing?” and “Did we do the thing right?” are two questions a good evaluation can help you answer. Program Evaluation 101 focuses on key principles and methods of evaluation so that you can more effectively understand the success and effectiveness of your work. Topics include:

  • Purposes of evaluation
  • Creating an evaluation plan
  • Building a logic model
  • Evaluation tools
  • Communicating evaluation results
  • Big picture issues

Participants will have the opportunity to build a draft evaluation plan during the workshop, and will leave with templates and practical resources. Bring a sample program (past or current) from your organization to workshop with your peers.
