Assessment and Evaluation Resources

Recently there has been a heavy focus on assessment and evaluation in grant requirements. Many federal programs require schools to do a needs assessment and process and outcome evaluation to show the need for the program and demonstrate results.

The Second Step and Steps to Respect programs both include needs assessment and evaluation tools to help you measure program success.
