Evaluation Foundations (WWC Sprint 009)

WWC Sprint


Description

Start Date: September 16, 2019
--
Duration: 6 weeks
--
Why do evaluations matter? City governments take responsibility for providing a wide range of necessary services, and resources are often limited, so every dollar is a trade-off! Through evaluation, we can build an evidence base and continually improve, rather than making the same mistakes over and over (perhaps without even knowing it). If ineffective programs are bad, unintentionally harmful programs are worse. Evaluation helps us avoid both. This Sprint will give you an introduction to low-cost evaluation and past examples of the Behavioral Insight Team’s (BIT) work. Experts from BIT will provide you with examples, tools, and activities focused on how to use existing touchpoints and resources to design practical evaluations to answer important policy questions in real-world contexts.
