Evaluation 2016

Monday, October 24, 2016 (All day) to Saturday, October 29, 2016 (All day)

Evaluation + Design: Everything we evaluate is designed. Every evaluation we conduct is designed. Every report, graph, or figure we present is designed. In our profession, design and evaluation are woven together to support the same purpose—making the world a better place. By considering both as parts of a whole, we can advance that purpose.

Friday, October 28, 5:30 p.m. - 6:15 p.m. Room A601: "Using Collective Impact to Understand the Role of Non-profit Backbone Organizations
Join NCWIT's Wendy DuBow and Liz Litzler for this session. Abstract: Collective impact has become a catchphrase among some funders and non-profit organizations. The collective impact framework can help us design evaluations of social change movements. Because collective impact rests, in part, on the role of a backbone organization, and because evaluators are often charged with evaluating the effectiveness of these backbone organizations, we will drill down into the specific functions of backbone organizations, as described in the literature and observed in the non-profit backbone organization we evaluate.
