Evaluation Research (UGotClass)


Adult Enrichment / Computers & Technology -
UGotClass Fall 22

Road test evaluation research for your organization. You won’t be disappointed. Evaluation research can give you and your organization a systematic assessment of the value of resources and time you commit to a project, product, or specific goal. Evaluation research can determine whether or not a process has achieved a goal or yielded the desired results. Get introduced to the characteristics of evaluation research and how it can be directly applied to assess the impact or effectiveness of a program, policy, or procedure you want to road test in a professional setting.

This class can be taken individually or as part of the Statistics for Decision Making Certificate - For more information, go to our Online Professional Development Certificates & Courses FAQ
