Basics of Program Evaluation

One core credit toward Program Management and Nonprofit Leadership certificates.

Evaluation is often misunderstood as a discipline. The field is full of confusing terminology and so many different models and approaches. This workshop will help bring clarity and understanding so participants can help their organizations develop a successful evaluation program.

This workshop provides the foundational elements that are critical to being able to design, implement and use evaluation in real life settings. During the workshop, terminology will be unpacked and participants will walk through the steps of conducting an evaluation. Practical, applied concepts to approaching evaluation will be discussed.

Through this workshop, participants will:
  • Understand the history of the field of evaluation and the Joint Committee Standards. 
  • Articulate the various approaches evaluators use in conducting evaluations.
  • Understand the evaluation process.
