Takeaways from our month-long celebration of Final Evaluation Reports

April 22, 2020
Does February feel like a lifetime ago? Things might be crazy in the world right now, but TCEC is still here to help you with your evaluation needs. As part of that, we wanted to give you a refresher on our four-part webinar series on Final Evaluation Reports, also known as FER-bruary.

Just Right: What it takes to write a useful evaluation report

April 22, 2020
Once upon a time (it seems so long ago in the wake of current events) during the month of FER-bruary, the Tobacco Control Evaluation Center (TCEC) held a series of four webinars that explained what goes into writing a good final evaluation report.  It all comes down to telling an efficient story that has just the right amount of detail.

Resources for Reporting

April 22, 2020
Reporting is an important part of working in California tobacco control. Every six months progress reports are due, when an activity is done an activity summary report may be needed, and at the end of every funding cycle the final evaluation report is submitted.

TCEC is still open for business!

March 17, 2020

During this uncertain time, we wanted to provide our partners around the state with assurance that we are still available to help you with your evaluation needs.

TCEC staff are currently working remotely, and may not be available by phone. If you need immediate assistance, you can reach our Help Desk at any time by emailing tcecTA@phmail.ucdavis.edu.

We ask for patience during this time and send our thoughts to everyone navigating this crisis.
