06-18-2010 14:30

Sessions Description: Collect, analyze, and present data from complex evaluation studies in ways that are feasible for the evaluator and meaningful to the client. Explore lessons learned through over twenty years in evaluation consulting to ask the right questions, collect the right data and analyze and present findings in simple yet comprehensive ways.

We will use actual data samples along with examples of analysis techniques. You will have an opportunity to work in small groups with sample data and will explore various analysis techniques. Throughout the workshop, the presenter will respond to individual questions and facilitate group discussion on data handling topics. At the end of the workshop, you will take away fresh ideas to tackle your data handling challenges.

You will learn:

  • To develop and link a program theory, a holistic logic model, a data collection matrix, and evaluation tools,
  • To ask the right questions and get the answers you need,
  • To develop a data summary that triangulates the information collected from different sources,
  • To extract and map themes, prepare an evidence table, and report findings in a comprehensive but user-friendly way.
