May 31, 2012 Program Evaluation: Measuring Outputs vs Outcomes

Everyone says that we need to measure our program outcomes…but HOW? And why has this become so important to funding organizations and the public? Can we manage this with everything else we have to do? In this course, participants will learn to ask and answer critical questions such as: What outcomes can I really achieve with my clients? How will I measure these? How will I know if the program is successful? Small group work is emphasized including practice developing outcome goals, indicators, and logic models. This course will also review the key tenets of the Results-Based Accountability and its association with outcomes measurement efforts.
