Afterschool Evaluation 101 is designed to help out-of-school time program directors—with little or no evaluation experience—develop an evaluation strategy, which can help you identify ways to improve your program and serve your funders' reporting requirements. The guide can also help your staff recognize evaluation as a beneficial process, rather than as an added burden imposed by funders.

Afterschool Evaluation 101 will help you:

  • Determine the overall purpose of your evaluation. 
  • Create a logic model--a visual representation of your program strategy that will guide your evaluation.
  • Identify the resources you have available to conduct an evaluation.
  • Focus on your program's needs, resources, and developmental stage.
  • Select the evaluation design and data collection methods that are best suited to your program.
  • Make use of the data you have collected, including writing an analysis and how to take advantage of the data that you have analyzed.
