Tribal Evaluation Workgroup
American Indian and Alaska Native communities face unique challenges when participating in program evaluation. Historically, Tribes have experienced intrusive research and judgmental evaluations that have caused great harm. With the support of the Children's Bureau (CB), a group of national experts created a shared vision for the future of evaluation in Tribal communities and developed a guide (or roadmap) for building capacity and developing culturally and scientifically rigorous evaluation.
CB recently released the publication A Roadmap for Collaborative and Effective Evaluation in Tribal Communities and completed a pair of companion videos as part of its Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series. The videos provide a brief overview of the roadmap and highlight the roles of key stakeholders in this new vision for collaborative and effective evaluation. CB also released a video of workgroup members presenting the roadmap at the 2013 Tribal Early Childhood Research Center Summer Institute.
