Program Development

  • We will collaboratively assist in developing the underlying theory and logic of a new or existing program. This involves identifying desired activities and how they theoretically lead to short, intermediate, and long-term outcomes and impact.

  • Involving a program evaluator in the development state will maximize the chance of a successful, efficient, and cost-effective program.

 

Program Logic Modelling

  • In a series of collaborative sessions, we will help gain consensus among all involved stakeholders around the short, intermediate, and long-term outcome for your program.

  • The result will be an underlying theory of change and program logic model, which can help give a ‘snapshot’ of what a program could look like. This process is extremely useful for future planning and funding, but is also useful to connect with all of your stakeholders in a meaningful way.

 

Outcome & Process Evaluations

  • Outcome evaluations are used to help assess if and how the short, intermediate, and long-term outcomes are being achieved through evaluation methods (e.g., interviews, surveys, etc.)

  • Often accompanying outcome evaluations, a process evaluation is used to determine whether a program’s activities can be improved by evaluating service design and delivery. Ensuring a program’s activities are operating as they were intended can help assure that outcomes can be achieved.

 

Ongoing Program Monitoring

  • We will help design and carry out an evaluation plan that is meant to continually gather information aimed at improving service delivery and measure outcomes of your program.

  • This information is useful for tracking the progress of the program and can be used to make small changes to a program over time rather than waiting for a large evaluation and making major changes.

 

Additional Evaluative Services

  • Data analysis

    • Already have data, but need someone to critically analyze it? Let us help.

  • Needs assessments

    • Find out what your participants need from a program and what need your program is filling in your community.

  • Survey development

    • Online or in paper - both are an effective way to quickly gather data on a program.

  • Literature review

    • Find out what the academic and grey literature is saying about your type of program. What are the best practices for your program?

  • And more!
