This webinar prepares states to plan evaluation activities from start to finish. Attendees will explore common activities at each stage of the evaluation.


This webinar provides an overview of common activities—from start to finish— for each evaluation phase that help state workforce agency managers understand the details they need to plan for and manage the time involved to execute evaluations of RESEA interventions. Presenters in this session introduce the six broad evaluation phases: 1) planning; 2) designing; 3) launching; 4) collecting data; 5) analyzing data; and 6) communicating findings.  An overall evaluation timeline is shared and each evaluation phase is described in greater detail. For each of the evaluation phases, the webinar also describes the associated common activities, likely timeframes for these activities, commonly experienced roadblocks, and tips or remedies to prevent potential roadblocks.
