March 2016 - June 2018
Our evaluation of COHSE’s programming will be comprised of two phases. During the first phase of project discovery and planning, CC-PEG will work with COHSE stakeholders to create an evaluation plan and develop any information tracking systems needed for evaluation implementation. In the second phase, CC-PEG will pilot test the evaluation. Quantitative approaches (e.g. analysis of exit surveys, needs assessments and program performance data) will be utilized to assess the need for, quality and effectiveness of COHSE programming, whereas qualitative approaches (e.g. media content analysis, focus groups/key informant interviews) will be utilized to capture the impacts of COHSE programming, as well as facilitators and barriers to COHSE program effectiveness.
