SBA PCC Evaluation Working Group

Page history last edited by Angela Siefer 10 years, 1 month ago

The SBA PCC Evaluation Working Group's purpose: 
A) Provide suggestions to NTIA regarding SBA and PCC evaluation technical assistance.

B. Define a space for sharing evaluation materials and discussing evaluation. Having such a location will allow this working group to focus upon our specific task at hand. At the moment, the sharing space is this wiki on the Evaluation Resources Page.
B) Define why a common set of questions would be helpful, including possible funding sources. This will help us in to focus the common set of evaluation questions and criteria.
C.) Define a common set of evaluation questions and answer choices. Begin with defining big picture issues then drill down to specific questions and answer choices. Grantees are welcome to use not use the agreed upon questions.

All folks working on evaluation of SBA or PCC projects are welcome to participate in this working group. We are working group so all calls and discussions will be focused upon outcomes. General sharing of information will occur in spaces defined by the working group.

It will be interesting to see if this is a direction that other BTOP grantees want to go. In the meantime, ZeroDivide has been working on identifying potentially useful survey questions of our subrecipients' program participants. I have uploaded a Word document that tracks what we have found. It is called "BTOPTrainingIntakeSurvey-QuestionResearch.doc."
