What's it like to work with CCSR?

When organizations want to work with the Center for Community Support and Research, they might have some idea of what they want to get done, but they need help figuring out how to do it. In this post over on the American Evaluation Association blog, Dr. Tara Gregory describes one creative way CCSR might help an organization complete a logic model:

"We ask participants to think of their program and its outcomes in terms of a movie trilogy. ...We specifically ask them to think of Part 1 as the story of what people experience while involved in the program; Part 2 picks up at a later date (the specific timeframe depends on the program) and reflects the progression of outcomes; and Part 3 represents the transition to 'happily ever after.'"

The American Evaluation Association is a group of evaluators committed to improving evaluation practices and methods. CCSR has ten researchers on its staff and regularly provides program evaluation services to nonprofit organizations and government agencies across Kansas.

If you are interested in CCSR's research and evaluation services, contact Dr. Tara Gregory at 316-978-3843 or email us.
