Deeper Dive into Data Informed Decision Making - Session 2 Evaluation in the Prevention Planning Process

“How do we use our data to make sure we’re hitting our mark?”

Evaluation may seem like something that should be left to the experts but, as a coalition coordinator or member, you have the most direct view into what your group is doing, what’s working, and what’s not.  You also know WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.  In this webinar, we’ll discuss a process for deciding what information to collect, how to look at that information, and how to use it for course-correction and promoting sustainability as you evaluate your prevention efforts.  Participants will have opportunities to share successes and challenges, and to provide each other with “data therapy” to work through current challenges. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how prevention practitioners can determine what types of evaluation data to collect.
  • Identify what to look for in evaluation data to guide decision-making processes.
  • Describe how to use evaluation data to promote sustainability of effective prevention practices.
