Good evaluation not only answers the question, ‘did it work?’, but also documents your successes and gives you data for ongoing improvement.
Title I requires yearly evaluation of the programs in your Continuous Improvement Plan. Building evaluation and documentation into your program from the beginning of your planning process is a great foundation for success.
