The Step-By-Step Guide to Evaluation: How to Become Savvy Evaluation Consumers

Community Science is proud to present The Step-By-Step Guide to Evaluation: How to Become Savvy Evaluation Consumers, which we developed for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (download here). This new guide is designed for people with little or no experience with formal evaluation to help them become more familiar with evaluation concepts and practices, partner better with independent evaluators, and use evaluation more effectively to continually learn from and improve their work. It draws from Community Science’s knowledge of evaluation, existing publications about evaluation, as well as our staff’s extensive experiences with building the evaluation capacity of nonprofit organizations. This guide includes tips and tools for practical and important matters such as stakeholder engagement, simple quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and communication and use of evaluation findings. We hope that it will help demystify evaluation and encourage people to use data to inform their strategies to effect social change and promote equity and justice.
