Introduction to Program Evaluation

Introduction to Program Evaluation is a one-day session Friday, December 17, 2021. The workshop begins at 10:00 a.m. and will conclude at 3:30 p.m., with a lunch break. This course provides training on evaluating public services and programs. At the end of the course, participants will understand and be able to describe program evaluation, and how it fits with budget planning and implementation. In addition, participants will be able to identify a variety of program evaluation tools, map out a basic evaluation plan that could be used in their office, and understand how to effectively present evaluation results. At the end of the course, participants will understand and be able to describe what program evaluation is, how it focuses on success understood in a different way - short-term to long-term impact. Throughout the workshop we will be referring to your own situation and you will be asked to apply the ideas to the program, policy or process what you want to evaluate in your own organization. The goal of the workshop is to let you leave with a solid 'take-away' of how to start your planning evaluation planning.
