Creating a new generation of data to solve social problems.
Mission Measurement is leading two sessions at this year’s American Evaluation Association Conference in Minneapolis: One focused on common evaluation approaches for the education sector; the other focused on measuring the results of policy change and advocacy work.
Engagement Manager Elliot Ransom will lead the first session with USAFunds on October 25, which will explore how to develop a common evaluation framework that applies across an entire organization, focused on college access and success. Key learnings from this session will include: Techniques for building organizational support at all levels for performance evaluation; building a common evaluation framework that applies to a variety of strategies; and executing on a common evaluation plan through collaboration across multiple functions.
The second session will be led by Director Kim Silver in conjunction with Health & Disabilities Advocates (HDA) on October 27, exploring how Mission Measurement helped HDA develop a model for measuring the results of policy change and advocacy work. This session will include a discussion of the process that HDA pursued to develop a measurement framework and will focus on the development of tools to measure policy change and advocacy outcomes, particularly the policy change continuum.
