Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Certificate

Create outcomes-based program evaluation plans that improve results.
The Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Certificate, sponsored by the Rees-Jones Foundation, consists of six classroom sessions designed to expand the capabilities of a nonprofit professional responsible for programs and reporting impact. Participants will learn how to formalize program logic, develop indicators to measure success, determine appropriate data collection and analysis methods, communicate findings, and use the results for program improvement, innovation and growth. Over the course of the certificate, participants will build and present a Program Evaluation Framework for a single program.
