BUILDING A LEARNING AGENDA
What do you want to learn about the work your organization does? Start your evaluation planning by building a learning agenda that maps out your learning questions, activities, and the impact the answers might have on your organization. It's helpful to work on this in tandem with your Communication Plan.
EVALUATION COMMUNICATION PLAN
The Communication Plan aims to align the learning agenda with evaluation products that will be as useful as possible. We do this by taking a backwards planning approach that will provide a roadmap for identifying the kinds of evaluation questions to ask and the right methodologies to answer those questions.
PARTICIPANT JOURNEY MAPPING
A journey map outlines the participant’s interactions with your programs in order to understand the experience from the participant’s point of view. It can help us gain insight into their goals and motivations, look for gaps and opportunities, identify moments for embedded or external data collection, and create a cohesive story about their engagement over time.
Equitable and anti-racist evaluation requires critically reflecting on our shared definitions of equity, access, and broadening participation, and examining how we can address these three priorities at each stage of the evaluation project. This tool supports teams to take specific, actionable steps in their commitment to anti-racist education.
