The RRC has developed an easy to use Evaluation Tool Basket which is designed to help programs and organizations complete their own internal evaluation. The tools are written in plain-language and there are numerous tools included so that each program or organization can choose which ones are relevant to them.
Evaluations can occur at the beginning (formative) or at the end (summative) or a program. They can also be one-time, or follow participants over time (pre-post test). Finally, they can include questionnaires (quantitative), interviews or focus groups (qualitative) or both (mixed methods). The tools in this Tool Basket can be used in any of these types of evaluations. The RRC is also available for consultation.
