Our Services

Logic Modeling

We develop logic models with organizations for program and strategic planning as well as program evaluation. A logic model is a one-page visual document that shows the link between inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes of an initiative or effort.

Survey Development

Surveys can be used to collect meaningful information about participants and to assess change on targeted outcomes. We follow a systematic and scientifically-based process for developing surveys to help ensure that findings can be trusted.

Focus Groups & Interviewing

Through focus groups or interviews we collect in-depth information about specific aspects of projects that are of interest. For example, these qualitative techniques can be used to obtain insight into the experiences of participants and to understand how programs can best achieve their goals.

Mixed Method Research

In evaluation projects is it often helpful to use both quantitative and qualitative approaches in combination to obtain more comprehensive answers to evaluation questions.

Evaluation Videos

EvalNetwork creates evaluation and program summaries in a video format to make information about projects more accessible, in order to reach a broader audience.  Video are professionally designed and produced.

Evaluation Reports

We develop technical reports to provide feedback and suggestions to the programs that we evaluate and research. Products such as One-Page and Executive Summaries are employed to encourage utilization of findings.

Quantitative Data Analysis

Advanced quantitative data analysis techniques are used to obtain an understanding of your project. A multitude of evaluation questions can be addressed utilizing descriptive and inferential statistics. For example, “Did our participants benefit from their participation in the project?”

Qualitative Data Analysis

We use specialized scientific techniques for extracting meaning from open-ended data sources, such as interviews and focus groups, to obtain insight into aspects of an organization’s efforts. This key component of qualitative research is used, for example, to get a thorough understanding of participants’ experience of a program or to elucidate how a project achieves its outcomes.
