Project Evaluation Form

You probably ordinarily collect much information that can support evaluation. You probably don't need expert help. If you decide you want help, you might contact school district evaluators and local university faculty.

Methods of Collecting Evaluation Information:

  • Program records: attendance, record of service hours, evaluation forms, etc.
  • Student work: journals, expert papers, class discussion, and evidence such as news clippings, videos, photos, reports, etc.
  • Observation by teacher, students and other staff and volunteers
  • Telephone or face-to-face surveys or interviews
  • Mailed questionnaires
  • Small group interviews or focus groups
  • Public meetings or discussions
  • Pre- and post-tests of student knowledge and attitudes

Program Evaluation Worksheet
What are your goals for the project? What difference will it make for students, people in the community, the environment, or organizational partners? Does it meet other program goals? (Such as Graduation Standards.)

What are your most important questions about your project? (For example, "How much do students learn about water quality?" or "How many households do we inform about water quality?")

What do you need to know to answer these top two questions?
