CEEP designs and conducts comprehensive evaluations that provide frequent and constructive feedback to improve program or project effectiveness. Government agencies, educational institutions, nonprofits, community organizations, and private companies partner with CEEP in order to establish measurable outcomes and to maximize impact. From longitudinal case studies to complex statistical analyses of student achievement data, CEEP’s experience includes both quantitative and qualitative approaches. The vast majority of evaluations, however, include both methodologies given the strengths of a mixed methodology approach.
CEEP also has extensive experience working closely and collaboratively with clients and key stakeholders to provide evaluation technical assistance to strengthen project objectives and performance measures. Technical assistance can include workshops and trainings; individualized one-on-one consultation; reviews via e-mail and telephone conference calls; webinars with interactive capabilities; and on-site visits for individualized technical assistance and training. For federal grantees, CEEP has conducted syntheses of evaluation and impact data reported on annual performance reports (i.e., 524bs); and has provided technical assistance needed to increase the quality and consistency of impact and evaluation data across thousands of grantees.
