Symposium to Focus on Best Evaluation Strategies

DECEMBER 12, 2012 - 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM ET

Washington, DC

For years, nonprofits have been using data to drive program development, build capacity and improve performance, but proving a program's success is now more critical than ever. Many different methods of evaluation exist, which can make it hard for nonprofits to determine which method is best.  This day-long symposium at the NeighborWorks Training Institute - called Beyond Measure: Using Evaluation To Build Evidence and Drive Learning - will focus on these issues and teach practitioners how to integrate evaluation measures into community development and funding practices.   Topics will include how evaluation fits into searches for public and private funding, ideas for collaboration, how to integrate data collection into everyday practices, how to utilize data analysis to get what you need, utilizing online mapping and data analysis programs, determining impact, capturing program results, and more.  Different approaches to evaluation will be explored, plus strategies for deciding which evaluation practices are best for your organization and the tools associated with each.  An opening plenary will start the day, followed by keynote speakers and interactive work sessions.   Learn more
