Practice Case 1: Survey or Group Interview

Now that your team has followed the Practice Case 1 scenario, come together to discuss what they have learned. Use the questions below to start a conversation about how your own team does evaluation, and ways in which you could improve.


  • To begin, ask a couple of participants to summarize the path that they chose in this module: either to do a survey, or to do group interviews.
  • What obstacles did the you encounter in each path?
  • Did you see any correlation between the issues raised in the practice case, and those you face in your jobs?
  • What kinds of evaluations would our team be interested in pursuing?
  • What obstacles might we expect?
  • How could we tackle these obstacles?
  • What is stopping the team from moving forward on evaluating the performance of our programs?
  • What steps could our team take to begin to assess our work, or improve our current evaluation plan?
