World Affairs Challenge (WAC)
The collaboration focused on exploring and clarifying WAC’s program needs, and building the organization’s evaluation capacity. The goal of the evaluation was to measure students’ growth in identified areas through participation in the program. We used a participatory evaluation approach to develop a logic model and evaluation matrix. In collaboration with the WAC team, we updated surveys using the logic model and evaluation matrix to gauge participants’ satisfaction and learning. Evaluators created a user-friendly data analysis tool to build the clients’ evaluation capacity in quantitative data analysis and reporting.
The data analysis tool created by The Evaluation Center is posted on their website. WAC program leaders explain the evaluation collaboration has enabled them to effectively demonstrate to funders and prospective students the positive impact their program has on participants: https://www.worldaffairschallenge.org/impact
