Evaluation is a powerful tool for understanding program and policy outcomes. From the local to the national level, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and foundations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate program effectiveness. The Carsey School of Public Policy Evaluation Program conducts rigorous program evaluation and applied research to provide programs and their funders the information they need to best serve individuals, families, and communities. We also provide technical assistance to organizations seeking to expand their internal capacity for evaluation.
“Over the past few years, I have worked with multiple Carsey researchers to assess the impact of the AMC’s environmental and positive youth development programs. Without exception, they have been responsive, flexible, and able to incorporate multiple types of inquiry to address our program’s varied nature. In particular, the ability to look at the data from different angles provided a deeper level of analysis that was extremely helpful.” Andrea Muller, North Country Youth Education Director, Appalachian Mountain Club
