Evaluation is not just about collecting data and writing up a report that explains the value of your program. That's part of it, but there's much more to an effective evaluation. Evaluation is about looking at your own program and challenging your assumptions using evidence that can inform decisions. It's a tall order, and we can’t afford to start every evaluation from scratch. Therefore, we developed this collection for NOAA staff who evaluate their own education programs. It includes definitions and tools you can use to help meet monitoring and evaluation requirements and improve your programs.
