CALCASA (Evaluation Training Series)

We conducted a series of in-person workshops to develop the evaluation skills of prevention practitioners in California. Workshops were offered in two parts entitled “Measuring Sexual Violence Prevention Efforts: Phase I and II.” Phase I focuses on an introduction to basic evaluation skills, such as: Process vs. outcome evaluation; using an evaluation work plan vs. a logic model; Evaluation for improvement; Keeping evaluation feasible and within resources; and Avoiding common mishaps. Phase II covers more advanced topics such as: Data management & entry basics; Getting data ready for analysis, Simple data analyses (using online survey software and hand calculations in Excel), and Viewing online survey results.
