Evaluation & Analytics

Effective program measurement and evaluation informs decisions, drives continuous learning and innovation, and above all, helps maximize resources and impact for veterans and military families.

We oversee program evaluation efforts for the Institute, lead or assist in evaluation efforts with our partners, and highlight leaders in the field. Our work spans a range of evaluation approaches and methods to assess and convey programmatic need, process, quality, efficiency, and outcomes.

What We Do

Internal Measurement & Evaluation

  • Evaluation Framework Development – Together with each of our programs & key support teams, we developed evaluation tools such as theories of change, process diagrams, & logic models to inform program measurement & storytelling.
  • Metrics Development – We work with program managers & AmericaServes networks to create & refine key performance indicators that assess a balanced set of measures such as network growth, quality of care, provider activity, & the changing needs of clients.
  • Quality & Continuous Improvement – With our data solutions team, we established & manage a governance initiative to communicate with & obtain input from users in order standardize our systems & data definitions.

External Evaluation & Capacity Building

  • Program Evaluation – We partner with wide range of clients to evaluate the impacts of their programs and services and recommend ways to improve these offerings.
  • Data Storytelling – We tailor the presentation of evaluation & insights to the desired audience including funders, the general public, veteran service organizations, & academics.
  • Capacity Building – We empower our partners to understand, improve, and communicate their own performance data to providers, funders, & key stakeholders.
