: Ripple Effects Mapping (REM): A Participatory (and Radiant!) Approach to Identifying a Program’s Intended and Unintended Outcomes and Impact - Joelle Cook and Ann Zukoski 

Thursday April 30th, 2015 2-2:20 PM 


Hard data and numbers only provide one part of the picture of a project. Ripple Effect Mapping (REM) is a participatory method that measures and captures the intended and unanticipated outcomes that contribute to a program’s impact. It is especially effective on complex evolving projects and captures the experiences and perspectives of both program staff and community beneficiaries. The result is a graphic ‘map’ showing how multiple factors contribute to a program’s success. Presenters will share their experiences and lessons learned using the method in two different evaluations. One, a developmental evaluation of an effort aimed to change provincial policy and the other, an outcome evaluation designed to capture how community partnerships’ are contributing to improving community health outcomes in rural communities in Minnesota.

: An Approach to Adding Interactivity to PDFs to Enhance Evaluation Practice and Reporting - Nikole Lobb Dougherty

Thursday May 14th, 2015 2-2:20 PM 


Recently the use of and options for interactive reporting and data visualizations in evaluation have grown tremendously. This webinar highlights an approach to incorporating simple interactivity into electronic portable document files (PDFs), such as embedding pop-up boxes, navigation features, and show and hide options when a user hovers over text or icons. The approach described can be applied to many types of data visualizations or reports and can be used to engage stakeholders throughout the evaluation process. The webinar will provide several examples of adding interactivity into data visualizations or reports that support different stages of evaluation, including describing the program, data analysis, and communication of findings.
