Innovative Evaluation Reporting


As an evaluator you are conscientious about conducting the best evaluation possible, but how much thought do you give to communicating your results effectively? Do you consider your job complete after submitting a final report? Reporting is an important skill for evaluators who care about seeing their results disseminated widely and recommendations actually implemented, but there are alternatives to the traditional lengthy report. This interactive workshop will present an overview of four key principles for effective reporting and engage participants in a discussion of its role in effective evaluation. Participants will leave with an expanded repertoire of innovative reporting techniques.

Learning Objectives:

  • barriers and facilitators of the utilization of findings
  • ways to engage stakeholders through a data party
  • tips for writing more actionable recommendations
