Program Evaluation can be defined as assessing the effectiveness of a program in achieving its objectives. This is accomplished through design standards that evaluate the outcomes based on processes using quantitative and qualitative data.
- Present program effectiveness to stakeholders and funders of initiatives
- Provide support for continued or increased funding
- Improve the effectiveness related to outcomes of programs
- Provide for best practices and accomplishments either within one entity or across all entities
Our team of experts has extensive experience in conducting such evaluations and our evaluators follow the standards set by the American Evaluation Association. For 30 years, the professionals at MGT of America have assisted organizations across the country with improving productivity, enhancing effectiveness, and increasing efficiency through comprehensive evaluations that define their business.
We offer our clients an understanding of how sound business practices are applied, and we design our recommendations for improvement based on our long history of performing such evaluations.
WHAT WE DO
MGT is experienced in longitudinal study design and implementation. We use multiple evaluation measures to ensure a broad spectrum of expected and unexpected outcomes is assessed in multiyear evaluation projects. These studies allow for clients to see how annual measurable results are improved due to the implementation of a process or program. For instance, in many PK12 educational entities, programs implemented can be tracked to a specific cohort of students for several years to measure improvement in test scores or grades in particular subjects.
MGT has developed key quality control measures for all forms of survey research. We have the strictest standards for telephone, mail, and web-based survey research and can ensure our clients accurate and confidential/anonymous quantitative and qualitative data analyses. Clients use our expertise and our data bank of survey questions to compare results to peers as well as track how internal perceptions differ from year to year, especially after programs have been implemented. MGT uses secured web servers for this purpose so clients can be reassured of confidentiality.
