The production of credible and defensible evaluation reports is essential to inform and support organizational decision making and learning. While evaluation reports are routinely produced, the use of these reports as a source of credible evidence for decision making and resource allocation, and as a means to inform organizational reflection and learning, could be much improved. The webinar will present the 10 key elements that make for good evaluation reporting. It will provide an overall structure for assessing and producing good evaluation reports.

CFB 197: Evaluation Made Easy: Creating Meaningful Toolkits; a Farm to School example - Dr. Lyn Kathlene
Thursday December 18th, 2014 2-2:20 PM 

Spark Policy Institute is rolling out a year of Toolkits for Social Innovators, including the FTS Evaluation Toolkit, which provides simple, straightforward information about how to design and implement evaluations of school gardens and other farm to school activities. In a succinct ten pages, the FTS Evaluation Toolkit Guide walks users through each step of the evaluation process, including how to prepare for an evaluation, identify outcomes, select and adapt measurement tools, complete an evaluation plan, implement an evaluation plan, and use evaluation results. This AEA Coffee Break session will not only introduce participants to the toolkit, but will also provide professional evaluators with tips for creating meaningful toolkits, regardless of the content area.
