Follow rating form sections

  • A word on “Evaluation Methods” section:

    • Intro paragraph: explain overall design

    • You may want to separate process and outcome evaluation

    • Describe sampling, data collection, and analysis for EACH evaluation activity

How do I report on multi-site evaluation?

  • Describe overall approach

  • Wherever approach and results differed by site (intervention and/or data collection activities), briefly describe those differences

What should i do if an activity was in the plan but we didn t do it

What should I do if an activity was in the plan but we didn’t do it?

  • Happens with intervention and evaluation activities

  • Address it, don’t ignore it

  • Explain situation

  • Discuss deliverables with PC

  • Mention any substitute deliverables


What if we did an additional evaluation activity that was not in the plan

What if we did an additional evaluation activity that was not in the plan?

  • Report on what you can given your resources

  • Note that it is additional to the original plan

  • Explain reasons why not fully carried out/ analyzed


How do i report negative results

How do I report negative results?

  • Data that showed no or negative change

  • Objective not achieved

    • Same as positive results – objectively

    • Report the data

    • Provide possible explanations and make recommendations


What should i do if i lost some data

What should I do if I lost some data?

  • Don’t guess or “try” to remember

  • Explain context and steps taken to remedy the situation

  • Mention under data collection instruments’ and procedures’ limitations

Should i include contact information of people we interviewed or surveyed

Should I include contact information of people we interviewed or surveyed?

  • No, FERS are public documents!

  • Instead, use position/ role of individuals

  • OK to mention names of events, businesses, venues, organizations that adopt policies

Can i write a combined report for all objectives

Can I write a combined report for all objectives?

  • Each report is a deliverable

Does the project director need to get involved in the FER writing?

  • Yes, collaboration between project directors and evaluators is imperative

What is the difference between a brief and final evaluation report

What is the difference between a brief and final evaluation report?

Brief reports:

  • Are not scored

  • Need less detail

    • Think “essential”

    • Think “to the point”

    • Think “most relevant”
