Assessment Made Simple
Presenter: Eric Stroshane, Library Development Manager
When: Thursday, April 19, 2018 1:30-2:00PM (CT)

All our libraries offer programs running the gamut from story time and author talks through health care enrollment and financial planning. We generally do a solid job of recording basic statistics, like the number of programs held and their attendance. However, it's much more challenging to measure, understand, and share the actual impact our programs and services have on our community. Usually the most we get is anecdotal evidence. In times of tightening budgets when the ongoing relevance of libraries is being questioned, outcome-based assessment can create datasets demonstrating libraries' substantial community impact at the local, state, and national levels. In this short webinar you'll get an overview of how to use free tools and readymade surveys from Project Outcome to tackle this tough problem in a simple straightforward fashion.

Disclaimer: There must be at least 5 participants signed up for the webinar by Monday, April 16th. We will not have the session if there are not enough participants. .
