Evaluation is a mindful and planned effort to capture the meaning and impact of our work; our results can help future practitioners in their efforts to prevent sexual violence and support survivors’ healing. Evaluation also helps keep us ethical and accountable to the communities and programs we serve. The tips within this three-part toolkit are meant as a starting place to begin creating an intentional evaluative practice within your coalition and while working with local community-based sexual violence programs.
Part one: This resource will focus on questions and processes that will build a strong foundation for evaluation: internal buy-in, narrowing focus or scope, and planning appropriate activities with available resources.
Part two: This resource will focus on working with individuals and organizations outside the organization: professional evaluators and funders.
Part three: This resource will focus on handling unanticipated or unintended outcomes of an evaluation or evaluative process.
