Her AAN training session, is “Did we make a difference?”: Practical Approaches to Measure Your Impact.

YOUR HOMEWORK: What’s a question you would like to answer about your program?

In this practice-based session, you will create a low- or no-cost evaluation plan to answer one question about your programs, clients, board, or staff. You pick the question, we provide the framework and peer support to refine and strengthen your process to answer it.

During this training, we will:
1. Briefly discuss what evaluation is, why it matters, and what it can help you achieve
2. Select a specific question your evaluation seeks to answer
3. Determine what information or data you need to answer it
4. Identify stakeholders involved throughout the process
5. Learn tools you can use to collect and analyze your data (qualitative or quantitative)
6. Discuss with whom and how you will share this data
7. Build an action plan and timeline to achieve your results

You will leave with an individualized plan and timeline to answer your evaluation question as well as a library of tools and resources to use throughout the process, including:
· Bank of evaluation questions
· Template for evaluation project planning
· Data collection tools
· Data analysis tools
· Data visualization tools
