April 2018Vol. 19, No. 3FRIENDS Evaluation Toolkit

FRIENDS has created a toolkit for developing individualized outcome evaluation plans. This toolkit can be used to help programs start to understand what they need to build evaluation capacity. It includes the following components:

  • Building Your Evaluation Plan: This component outlines some of the questions an evaluation plan should address as well as links to more information to get started in planning.
  • Logic Model Builder: This component helps programs identify outcomes, indicators of success, and evaluation instruments that may be appropriate to measure success.
  • Menu of Outcomes and Indicators: This component provides a list of potential domains and protective factors for programs to use when they are creating their logic model.
  • Annotated Measurement Tools: This component comprises a list, available in both alphabetical order and by protective factor, of measurement tools. Programs can use this annotated list to evaluate tools before committing to using them.
