Upcoming eStudy: Practical Evaluation: An Introduction for Those New to Evaluation

Have you heard about evaluation, know its important, but don’t really know how to incorporate it into your work? The American Evaluation Association is hosting an upcoming eStudy titled, “Practical Evaluation: An Overview and Introduction for Those New to Evaluation”. See below for a full description of the eStudy course.

“This course is an introduction to the major steps in designing and conducting a program evaluation. Using CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation, the course will emphasize the central importance of setting the right evaluation focus and asking the right evaluation questions. And how engaging stakeholders and a strong program description help ensure that the focus and questions are the best ones. The last session will show how those early decisions make it easier to identify  the most appropriate data collection methods and sources, choose the right ways to analyze data, and ensure that findings are reported in ways that will maximize the use of findings for program improvement.  Students will work on a variety of case examples to help reinforce teaching points.”

Dates: Friday, January 16th, Friday January 23rd, Wednesday, January 28th and Friday, January 30thfrom 12:30pm-2:00pm EST
