Hungry for More Evaluation Ideas? How About a Tip a Day?

Sometimes people ask us where we get ideas for our posts.  I’m going to tell you one of our big secrets – when we can’t think of something we check out the American Evaluation Association’s daily blog AEA 365 | A Tip-A-Day by and for Evaluators.  Seriously, every single day some evaluator posts a tip for other evaluators.

In no way do we rewrite any of their posts, but we do in fact scrounge for ideas.  I thought you might want to scrounge for your own ideas by looking at this great blog now and then.

Just this week, there’s a post about about using very short surveys throughout a project so that you can make changes to improve your project as you go: Using pulse surveys to get rapid actionable feedback from teachers during a professional development experience by Valerie Futch Ehrlich  Along with describing how they did it, the post also recommends a survey tool called Waggl that allows people to vote on each others’ feedback, so the best ideas float to the top. Cool, right?

Here’s another post about how you can use tables to explain complicated ideas to potential funders in grant applications: Using Tables Effectively in Grant Proposals by Kate LaVelle and Judith Rhodes. 

Happy scrounging!
