Tips for choosing what to evaluate

Tips if you are choosing a project, program or initiative to evaluate within your school:

  • strategic - choose something where the evaluation findings have implications for school leadership AND/OR   implementing your 2018-2020 School plan
  • mature - if your project is in its early stages of implementation, you might not be able to say much about outcomes
  • contained - if it has too many different elements, it will be difficult to evaluate within the time frame
  • focused - if its objectives are unclear or too general, the evaluation will be difficult to plan.

Before attending the workshop, ask yourself:

  • what data do you think would be useful?
  • does this data already exist?
  • if not, how would you collect it?
