a social interest

Students worked outside of class time to help the fire victims in Bastrop, TX. My [RY] students gathered donations, separated and boxed clothes and made some small posters with encouraging words for the families that were affected. I heard one of my students comment, “This has really been fun; we are helping out families who lost everything, we are bonding ourselves and we didn’t even have to be out drinking to have a good time.”

Evaluation Tools

Validated, standardized evaluation measures for each of our programs. Evaluation is critical to monitor program implementation fidelity (process evaluation) and to determine the results of implementing the program (outcomes evaluation). We offer tools to measure both process and outcomes variables.

Process Evaluation
These are evaluation tools that measure fidelity of program delivery. Process evaluation answers the question, “Was the program delivered as designed?”
 
Outcome Evaluation
These are evaluation tools that measure the desired changes in your students. Outcome evaluation answers the question, “Did the program work to help the students achieve the intended goals?”
 
Evaluation Planning
Evaluation is an essential component of program implementation and a critical step in sustaining your program, including funding. We can assist you in planning and budgeting for evaluation, so please contact us with any questions.
