did you know
DID YOU KNOW…….??
  • Volunteer Florida designed the Statewide Evaluation to be cost-effective for AmeriCorps and painless for programs (you don’t have to hire your own Evaluator unless your funding exceeds $500,000 annually).
  • FSU owns the survey and administers it, but it was designed by a small group of Florida AmeriCorps program directors who piloted and refined it for FSU.
evaluation vs performance measures why do we need both
Evaluation vs. Performance Measures:Why do we need both?

Evaluation

  • Uses scientific/rigorous research methods
  • Long-term focus: covers more than one year
  • Answers questions about causality and “Value Added” to the community served

Performance Measures

  • Gives annual snapshot of programs’ progress
  • Used for on-going monitoring of outputs and outcomes
  • Short-term accountability to show if a program is “on track”

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Each time FSU conducts the survey (Spring and Fall), Volunteer Florida needs your help:

  • Alert your partners the survey is underway;
  • Remind your partners to complete the survey;
  • Insure the survey is being sent to the person who will be completing the survey;
  • Notify FSU if a partner/contact person changes.
