Evaluation design & implementation

The Center for Program Design and Evaluation (CPDE) has been so valuable to my grant-funded programs. Our funders require a robust evaluation component in every grant application and require a detailed evaluation summary with every annual report. CPDE is a one-stop service unit that provides all of what we need, like measuring outcomes of our work, tracking process and progress, and advising us on program development.

Program design

I truly do not know what we would do without CPDE. Its members have been instrumental to the success of our NIH-funded program since it was conceived, and are part of the reason it was even funded. The level of evaluation needed to assure that this program is meeting its objectives is enormous and must be conducted in a thoughtful and scientific manner. In short, the quality of their evaluation is exemplary.
