The Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, in partnership with the Pathways to College Network, is pleased to announce the public release of the Evaluation Toolkit. This Evaluation Toolkit has two purposes:

  1. The first goal is to develop a freely accessible, research-based Evaluation Toolkit that will enable outreach programs to more readily and systematically use data and outcome measures to improve service delivery.
  2. The second goal is to promote research that will identify effective program models across outreach programs and document the collective impact of programs by using the evaluation data generated through the common assessment framework in the Toolkit.

The Evaluation Toolkit consists of a basic information section called Evaluation 101. It also has an Evaluation Guide which consists of sections on how to develop a plan, collect data, analyze data and communicate and improve.
