Program Evaluation Toolkit

A Module Based Toolkit for Professional Development and Program Evaluation

Introduction

Overview

The Program Evaluation Toolkit presents a step-by-step process for conducting your own program evaluation. The Quick Start Guide will help you decide if you are ready to use this toolkit and where to start.

Program evaluation is important for assessing the implementation and outcomes of local, state, and federal programs. Designed to be used in a variety of education settings, the toolkit focuses on the practical application of program evaluation for all users. The toolkit can also build your understanding of program evaluation so that you can be better equipped to understand the evaluation process and use evaluation practices.

The toolkit includes eight modules that begin at the planning stages of an evaluation and progress to the presentation of findings to stakeholders. Each module covers a critical step in the evaluation process.

The toolkit includes guided instructional videos that provide an overview of each stage in the evaluation process. It also includes handouts, worksheets, and tools to help you conduct your own evaluation. Resources in the toolkit will help you create a logic model, develop evaluation questions, identify data sources, develop data collection instruments, conduct basic analyses, and disseminate findings.
