Identify a data collection tool that fits your organization.
Draft a data collection protocol.
This 2-hour workshop is a follow-on to the Logic Models and Measuring What Matters workshop. Participants should bring their organization's logic model. Participants will consider the benefits and costs of various data collection options, including assessments, surveys, interviews and interactive focus groups. They will then choose the option that fits their organization goals, and yields the best data for the effort. Finally, they will develop data collection protocols that address outputs and outcomes from the organization's logic model, and that make use of rubrics that capture levels of performance.

Melissa Binder, Ph.D., is Director of the UNM Master of Public Policy and Associate Director of the UNM Evaluation Lab, which she helped create in 2015. The Evaluation Lab has worked with dozens of New Mexico nonprofits since then to build effective and sustainable evaluation systems that are inclusive, embedded, and that measure what really matters. The Evaluation Lab has two programs: a student fellowship that partners graduate students with nonprofits looking for hands-on support, and an annual Summer Institute that trains nonprofits in building internal evaluation capacity. Melissa is also a faculty member in the UNM Economics Department.
