As state workforce development leaders continue to adjust to and rethink the best path forward in these uncertain economic times, they need evidence-based information for informed decisions. The recently updated Evaluation Toolkit provides an accessible and practical “how-to” guide to help state workforce agency leaders design and implement workforce program evaluations. 

The six sections and appendices in the toolkit offer wide-ranging information that includes an overview of the purposes and key concepts of evaluation; a framework for evaluation policy, evaluation planning and research learning agendas; evaluation methods and activities; and processes to select an evaluator, among other factors to consider. Download and read the updated toolkit now to help your state make the best decisions to serve your stakeholders.
