Evaluation Flash Cards


(Stacey McDonald) #1

The Otto Bremer Trust engaged in a series of learning seminars on evaluation, led by evaluation guru Michael Quinn Patton. At the end of the seminars, they asked him to create a set of basic reference cards - the Evaluation Flash Cards - to help remind people of some core evaluation concepts.

There are 25 Flash Cards that cover concepts like evaluative thinking, theory of change, triangulation through mixed methods, fidelity, dosage, and more. Check out the set of flash cards out here.

Any topics on these cards you’d like us to dig into a little deeper? I’m thinking of some new ways (group video/phone calls, live chats, etc.) in which I can help people working with community organizations and nonprofits learn more about and/or improve skills in evaluation. Share your ideas/suggestions!
