About this training
NCSE has designed this interactive training based on expertise in research and evaluation, lessons learned about truancy reduction and practical training experience. We will cover the processes necessary to decide what data to collect, what data collection methods to use, and how to assure the highest quality data possible so that you can draw accurate conclusions about your program. Participants will learn about process and outcome evaluations, and how to avoid common problems associated with each. Activities include a survey question writing exercise, logic modeling of your program, and work time to begin designing your own program evaluation. Note: This is not a data analysis or statistics class.
Who should attend?
It is ideal for those in charge of truancy reduction programs who want to use evaluation to make their programs as efficacious as possible or who need to report program effectiveness to funders. It is intended for those who are new to program evaluation. Attendees will leave with ideas for how to structure evaluations and manage data collection, and with the vocabulary needed to interact effectively with professional evaluators and data analysts. You will also leave with a new network of contacts working in your field.
Cost: $275. A 15% deduction for a group of four attendees OR for registering for at least three trainings. A continental breakfast and lunch is included. If you have a large team, contact us to discuss a training at your location.
