Evaluation & Outcomes

Working with Outcomes
This one-day training introduces participants to outcome evaluation, and takes participants through the steps of developing outcomes and measures, and planning for data collection and reporting. The workshop combines instruction with hands-on practice.

Evaluation  101 - Evaluation for the Rest of Us

The expression "do your level best" originated during the California Gold Rush of the 1840's, when prospectors panning for gold would shake the sand and gravel from the riverbed until it was level, the better to spot the fragments of gold.  Learn how to increase your capacity and confidence about evaluation so that you can make the "gold" in your work stand out.

Introduction to Logic Models

Learn basic evaluation such as formative, process and outcome evaluation; what a logic model is; and how to create a program and evaluation logic model for your program.  This is hands-on training that will add a new skill to your toolbox.

Stress Free Outcomes
Outcomes are designed to demonstrate through documentation that intended results of programs have been achieved. An added benefit is that programs are able to see for themselves how effective they have been and where improvements can be made. This session presents an approach to outcomes that is easy to implement and simple to process. The results of two large-scale, multiple-site evaluations are covered, with an explanation of how similar basic outcome measures approaches can be achieved. Discussion of the results, their meaning, and the process necessary to obtain these and similar outcome measures from agency staff will be provided.
