Interpreting Evaluation Data: Unlocking Insights for Project Improvement

Presenters: Megan Lopez, and Lyssa Wilson Becho
Date: Wednesday, October 25
Time: 9 a.m. – noon ET

This interactive workshop is designed for ATE evaluators, PIs, and project staff who are looking to make the most out of their project evaluation. We will focus on the vital skill of interpreting evaluation data to facilitate meaningful project improvement and assess overall project effectiveness. Interpreting evaluation data is a crucial step in extracting valuable insights and making informed decisions. Interpretation differs from data analysis. Interpretation allows for sense-making and evaluative conclusions. Throughout the workshop, participants will explore various methods of data interpretation, including comparative analysis against historical or baseline data, benchmarking against national datasets, and leveraging engagement through participatory sense-making sessions. Using practical examples, hands-on activities, and engaging discussions, participants will be able to apply these interpretation techniques to their own ATE evaluations.
