Institute Information:

The Advanced Institute will focus on data analysis and report writing in the context of previously formulated evaluation plans. This Institute is intended primarily for participants with prior experience in evaluation. We will bring examples from our evaluation practices, and participants are expected to bring their evaluation plans and data with them. Time we be allocated so that you will have time to work on analyzing and reporting the data that you bring. It is also recommended that you bring a laptop computer with you so that you may work on your data. Advanced statistical and qualitative data analysis programs will be demonstrated by the EvAP staff.
