Getting the Most out of Evaluation
In this article from Nonprofit Quarterly (NPQ), Project Evident’s Managing Director Kelly Fitzsimmons lays out challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned in performing program evaluations and understanding their results.
Kelly writes: “Just as every youth-serving organization or program is unique, so every evaluation presents its own challenges and opportunities. One size does not fit all. But over the years, we have made some general observations and learned some lessons that we hope policymakers, funders, and nonprofit practitioners may find helpful as starting points when they consider how to interpret and use evaluation findings.”
