Designing Systems to Track Data and Produce Evaluation Reports
Many programs cannot afford large and expensive databases to track program outcomes and progress indicators. Using software which most agencies already have, we create databases that are easy to use, visually friendly, and affordable.
Each database is customized to meet the client's needs. These range from a simple data entry form to a more in depth database with automated calculations and reporting features. Once the database is created, we provide each client with the tools and training to effectively manage their database.
These databases can store data and provide real time updates. Programs use the databases to store attendance, surveys, and other outcomes. For detailed analysis and evaluation purposes, some programs have the database downloaded to an evaluator annually. This provides the program with data that they can manage on an everyday basis but would position them to work with an outside, independent evaluator to produce more comprehensive annual reports.
