Demonstrating the effectiveness of a program or project is critical to ensuring that the chosen strategies are achieving the desired results. To help secure future funding and public support, evaluation explains and justifies the value of a program. Agnew::Beck designs program evaluations to meet each organization’s needs, funder requirements and the specified budget. We are committed to engaging a wide range of stakeholders and bringing in multiple perspectives through the design and implementation process. This ensures that findings are representative and comprehensive and that the organization can use them to improve their programs in a meaningful way.
One recent example of our evaluation work was the Yupiit Piciryarait Cultural Center and Museum Native Archive project with the Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP). AVCP hired Agnew::Beck to design and conduct an evaluation of their project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of the evaluation was to measure the effectiveness of the program in increasing cultural preservation efforts in the AVCP region and connecting those resources to schools throughout the region to improve student performance.
