Evaluation Services

Evaluation can be defined as "The periodic assessment of efficiency, performance, relevance, and impact of a project or program in the context of stated objectives." CPRD offers evaluation services to help you determine the impact of your efforts, and what you can do to improve your program.

Example

Evaluation of an afterschool program: by surveying students and parents and teachers, and then accessing and linking report card and program attendance data, we were able to show that a multi-school effort in one Midwestern town was raising grades, empowering students, reducing behavioral problems, and helping parents feel connected to their child's school. This information can be used in the school (informing students, teachers, administrators), for parents (PTA, newsletters), for writing grant reports (to current funders), and for new grant proposals.
