Once upon a time, there was an evaluation report that people actually read.

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Sound like a fairy tale? Exactly! A report format that follows a typical story-telling structure can help you communicate your project’s story so that stakeholders may actually pay attention. In this format, you use evaluation data to complement, not overpower, the most important messages you want to convey. Cindy Olney, from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Outreach Evaluation Resource Center, will describe how to use a story format to report evaluation findings. This format can be adapted for written reports, presentations, and even elevator speeches.
