Program evaluation is essential to improve your work, deepen equity, and share your impact.  This class will show you how to move beyond using instincts, anecdotal information and educated guesses to document whether your programs are meeting their promised goals and directing your resources effectively.  It will provide you with simple systematic methods for collecting, analyzing, and using information, including a step-by-step model for an evaluation design, to answer basic questions about a program such as: “Is this program meeting its promised impact?”  “Is it working better for some subset(s) of clients over others?”  “How might we tweak the program to have even more impact?”   You will leave with proven tools, approaches, techniques, and ideas that are customizable to a wide range of programs and to your organization’s and staff’s capacity and give you the data you need for sound decision making and sharing with donors, clients, staff, and others.
