ReLearning Curve draws upon a broad range of analytic designs, methodologies and data collection tools in order to tailor each evaluation to meet the needs of our clients. Examples of the types of evaluations we provide include the following:
Research for Organizational Learning
Relearning Curve conducts Implementation Evaluation focused on understanding how programs are implemented in order to improve them during their life cycle. We evaluate programs with instruments that are consistent with and sensitive to our partners’ needs. We have a hands-on approach and regularly share our findings and analysis with program staff so that this information can be translated into improved programming. We ensure all stakeholders are aware of program strengths, as well as understand the areas in need of improvement. We compile our data into annual reports that are informative, well organized, and enlivened by graphics and photos.
Research for Accountability
ReLearning Curve conducts Outcome Evaluation to determine whether an organization or program has met or is meeting a set of defined goals, objectives and benchmarks. We work with organizations that need to show evidence of meeting outcomes that are pre-determined by funders. We also provide organizations with support to identify and evaluate the outcomes that they have set for themselves. We are proficient in using tools such as logic models or Theory of Change to build an evaluation plan based on outcome mapping.
Research for Program Development
ReLearning Curve conducts research to help organizations develop new programs and initiatives. We conduct Developmental Evaluation, Needs Assessments and provide a variety of services that can increase the knowledge base of our partners in order to inform their planning process. These services include analyzing research literature, facilitating focus groups, interviewing stakeholders, administrating surveys, and identifying best practices.
Research for Impact
ReLearning Curve conducts systematic Impact Evaluation to demonstrate the effects a project, program or policy can have on individuals, an organization, or a community.
Research for Inclusion
ReLearning Curve conducts Participatory and Empowerment Evaluation to foster participation, learning and empowerment among an organization’s stakeholder groups.
