The Evaluation Center’s Projects
The programs, goals, and initiatives that each of our clients have are unique to them. While grouping them can be difficult, most of our projects can fall into one of the following broad categories:
Since its inception, The Evaluation Center has worked with community programs that provide critical services to individuals, neighborhoods, and communities across Colorado and beyond. The Evaluation Center helps to strengthen community-based programs through providing quality, collaborative, and inclusive evaluation services, which in turn, enable programs to deliver services more effectively and continue to serve as a strong voice for their communities.
For over one decade, The Evaluation Center has provided evaluation of medical education and clinical training programs. Largely funded by the National Institutes of Health, we have evaluated national and international programs that aim to: educate and train undergraduate and graduate students in health and biological sciences; accelerate the development of inter-professional education and implementation science in Sub Saharan Africa; build medical research capacity of junior faculty trainees; and initiatives to support junior investigators from under-represented groups as they transition to postdoctoral academic research careers.
Another area of emphasis for The Evaluation Center is PreK-12 public education and institutions of higher learning. Many of the evaluations focus around teacher effectiveness, compensation systems, curriculum evaluation, and professional development programs.
Our work evaluating public health initiatives has involved collaborating directly with communities by providing technical assistance in assessment and evaluation, conducting community health needs assessments, and measuring patient outcomes and service delivery.
