Monthly Method Spotlight: Evaluations


When/why: An evaluation is a good way to assess and get feedback from users about a service, program, workshop, etc.

How: Similar to surveys, ask concise questions that will help evaluate the service, program, workshop, etc.

Ask colleagues for feedback about your evaluations. It’s tempting to ask about everything, but keep the evaluations short and simple. Our evaluation consists of four questions:

  1. What did you like about the meeting?
  2. What can be improved?
  3. I am going to use what I learned (how/where/when):
  4. Additional comments:
