If you want to know whether or not the programs are offering are having an impact, RTDS can help you get clear about the goals you want those programs to accomplish, and the specific ways to measure whether or not what you are currently doing is achieving those goals. In so many cases, program evaluators either lack the scientific rigor to know whether your programs are really working, or they are so focused on doing “good” research that they ignore the fact that the goal is to make program more effective.
Our program evaluation processes and methods are built on:
- A foundation of rigorous scientific methodologies.
- The necesssity for not only measuring effectiveness, but also impacting people in the process.
- An understanding that assessment of a program’s effectiveness must connect back to the program in a way that program designers can improve how the program is delivered, or find an alternative that will be more effective.
