Build Your Program Evaluation Capacity

The Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Institute

The Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Institute (OBPEI), sponsored by the Moody Foundation, provides organizations with the knowledge and skills to evaluate program efficiency and effectiveness. As a result, you’ll fill a critical knowledge gap for your organization to help make program improvements for an even greater impact. In turn, you’ll be able to demonstrate to your stakeholders that your programs are working.

The OBPEI consists of four in-class sessions and eight hours of one-on-one coaching with PhD-level program evaluation consultants. Participating organizations will design an evaluation framework for one program that includes a theory of change model, a logic model with goals and indicators and a data collection plan. 

Between sessions and coaching meetings, participating organizations are expected to complete homework assignments that contribute to the development of their program’s evaluation framework.

  • Have a mission focused primarily on Arts, Education, Environment, Health or Social Services.

“The Moody Outcomes Institute helped key players in our organization gain a deeper understanding of how to collect and measure important data on our programs. In addition, it helped us to get on the same page as a team about what we value in terms of data. CNM did a fantastic job of leading the workshops and we are so grateful for the opportunity to attend.”
