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.

Evaluation Lifesavers: Resources on Reporting

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.

Report Results

Ideally, each data collection activity is accompanied by a report detailing the methodology, findings, and recommendation. This can be a formal report, but it can also be a fact sheet, pamphlet, presentation, or other product that communicates evaluation findings and offers recommendation for future action.
