Examining Evidence of Project Impact and Effectiveness


"The purpose of this session is to generate discussion among projects in order to a) identify common problems of reasonable specificity in research and evaluation and b) find ways of exchanging solutions. The three presenting projects differ somewhat in design and objective, but the presenters have found significant common ground. All have responded to challenges in matching the evaluation/research design to the overall project vision, balancing the research/evaluation portfolio, articulating useful theoretical models, acquiring data, and generating publishable findings. This session is intended to initiate lasting communications between projects, leading to productive cooperation with focused objectives and possible joint activities in the future."
