Clever Evaluation

Program evaluation is a lot like exercising: most of us know it’s important and plan to start doing it as soon as we have time. This workshop presents resourceful ways to make program evaluation less overwhelming for busy project teams. Strategies include evaluation planning tools, using existing data, combining evaluation with other project activities, and enlisting the help of others in data collection. This is an online workshop.

The authors prefer that those who want to teach this webinar first take it from the NEO. Most images in NEO PowerPoint slides have been purchased from Stockfresh for use in the PowerPoint slides exclusively. It is a violation of copyright to copy and use those images in other documents.  If you want to use the image or the slide with that image in another presentation or document, you can purchase that or a similar image at or from a similar vender.


At the end of this program, participants will know

  • How to develop evaluation questions
  • Choose realistic outcomes measures
  • Identify rapid measurement methods that help make evaluation more manageable
