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.
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.
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.
In order to learn from what’s gone before, a project’s history needs to be summarized and documented along the way. An account of which strategies worked (or failed) with this population or that one, must be chronicled and archived someplace easy to find.
From TCEC’s website under "Reporting Results," here are three resources you might find useful when preparing for reporting, whether for progress reports, brief or interim reports, or your Final Evaluation Report.
