Community Needs Assessment
Once you have begun or are about to begin a data-driven program (i.e. based on a community needs assessment), your agency will be asked to answer to funders and stakeholders on the effectiveness of the program. In many cases, continued funding depends on the outcome of the program. There are four common types of program evaluation:
- Formative evaluation
- Process evaluation
- Outcomes evaluation
- Impact evaluation
Formative and process evaluations occurs before a program even takes place. Outcomes and impact evaluations usually occur after data has been collected over a designated period. These evaluations will help key stakeholders understand funding needs to ensure continued and adequate funding of a project.
Because the world of research methods, survey design, and data collection is rapidly evolving through technological innovations, we stay current with the latest technology.
We assemble our team based on client and project needs. With the use of remote-working technology, we engage PhD subject-area experts on an as needed basis for our clients.
Data collection costs time and money. We work with our clients to see if existing research and publicly available data sources can be used to assist them in making data-driven decisions.
