Are your evaluation surveys helping you make the right decisions?
Peel Region Evaluation Platform (PREP) is holding a two-part workshop on the use of surveys to measure impact. This workshop will be presented by Paul Bakker from Social Impact Squared. Paul is a Credentialed Evaluator who offers evaluation coaching to nonprofit, governmental and educational organizations.
Part A of this free workshop is best suited for staff or leaders at nonprofits in Peel Region who are responsible for or interested in program evaluation at their organization.
Surveys are one of the most common tools we use to evaluate our work. Surveying our stakeholders (including participants) to get their assessments of our impact is a great first step.
However, there are many reasons why stakeholder assessments may not be completely accurate.
This workshop will be delivered in two parts to improve knowledge and skills in using surveys to obtain accurate estimates of organizational impact.
Part A: Using Surveys to Improve Impact Measurement
In this workshop, we will explore whether and how to improve on our nonprofit's impact measurement efforts by using the most accurate survey methods.
This part will review the strengths and limitations of using surveys versus other common data collection methods (i.e. observation, interviews, focus groups, etc.). It will also review the strengths and limitations of different options for obtaining before and after (a program) impact assessments using surveys.
Note: the focus of Part A is not on how to draft good survey questions. Rather, the focus is on helping us know which of the different survey approaches to measuring impact we should use.
There will be a lunch and networking session held immediately after this workshop from 12noon-1pm. We'd be happy to have you join us, but your attendance is optional. To ensure we order enough food, please indicate your interest in staying for lunch on the registration form.
This registration is for Part A of the survey workshop ONLY. In order to attend Part B, please complete a separate registration page here: Part B: Pre-Post Survey Analysis.
