Evaluation 101: Evaluating Jewish Youth Programs

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), 2009

This article argues that evaluation is critical to assessing the effectiveness of Jewish educational and communal programs and services. It thus considers how a funder, federation, or program provider can evaluate, explore, improve and enhance its impact on participants by asking and answering carefully considered and relevant research and evaluation questions, and by utilizing specific evaluation methods. The author concludes that learning through evaluation, and the willingness to adjust and be open to constructive criticism will go a long way toward ongoing program improvement.
