Project Clearinghouse

An interactive online Project Clearinghouse is one of our newest developments. The clearinghouse is intended to be a rich online resource for nonprofit and funding organizations exploring ways to build evaluative capacity​. Extensive data available to review from a variety of our successful projects.

Advanced evaluation training provides participants with opportunities to develop an evaluation design, analyze program data and strategically communicate their findings with key stakeholders. 

All advanced evaluation training extended the work of basic training to include a focus on and activities related to planning for and conducting data analysis, and presentation of results including data visualization.  Advanced evaluation training always included involvement in actual evaluation projects.  

The projects listed on the right incorporated advanced evaluation training using differing strategies.  For example, the Building Evaluation Capacity (BEC) project used both basic and advanced evaluation training for staff in Hartford, CT over an 18-month period, as did the Rochester  Effectiveness Partnership (REP). In contrast, the Metrowest Evaluator’s Institute (MWEI) exposed participants to advanced evaluation training in a compressed timeframe.
