In-person | San Francisco, CA

* Registration for this program is closed due to limited space.

Also called “internal evaluation,” program assessment enables nonprofits to monitor and report on how they’re delivering services and to assess outcomes. An essential part of program management, participant surveys and other types of assessments can provide answers to such key stakeholder questions as “How have your clients changed after being in your program?” and “What have you learned from your data and put into place to improve your offerings?”

This workshop provides an introduction to conducting effective program assessments. Participants will gain hands-on practice developing target outcomes for a program logic model--a powerful planning, communication and evaluation tool--and receive tips on developing effective surveys.

The session is targeted to leaders of small and/or young education-focused social sector organizations seeking to cost-effectively assess their programs, both in response to funder needs and to draw lessons for improvement.


  1. Understand common program assessment terms and their uses
  2.  Increase knowledge of different approaches and assessment methods
  3. Gain familiarity with online and other resources
