CS OPEN Application Webinar
Google and the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) are committed to providing equitable access to CS education opportunities across the country. As part of our efforts, we are pleased to announce the new CS Outreach Program Evaluation Network (CS OPEN) designed to improve opportunities and empower underserved girls through computer science (CS) education. Google will provide expertise to improve NGCP programs by offering professional development to promote evaluation of CS education initiatives within the NGCP network.
In this webinar you will be presented with a process and resources for planning program evaluation in four parts. The first step is to make sure you can describe the program including its purpose, who it serves and how it works. Second you will see ideas for how to define the evaluation with it's particular purpose, focus, audience and context. Next you will see ways to plan the evaluation with specific questions, procedures, analyses and reporting strategies, and finally we will share ideas for managing evaluation including ways to define responsibilities, managing time frames and budget.
The webinar will prepare you to apply for our evaluation grant and give you resources for planning evaluations using the above approach that you can use whether you apply for and ultimately receive a grant or not.
