Assessment and Improvement of a Data System: Strategies and Lessons Learned from a Non-profit

Elena Pinzon O’Quinn, Learning and Evaluation Director, Latin American Youth Center

Charles Riebeling, Deputy Director of Accountability, Carlos Rosario Intermediate Public Charter School 

This session will outline the steps taken by a non-profit organization to assess a data and evaluation system and decide how the system could be improved. We will present our lessons learned from going through the process, the steps we decided to take, and the current status of the project. Session attendees will gain concrete, transferable strategies for assessing their own data systems, whether they are an administrator or an end user. We will discuss how to get other stakeholders (those who do not hold a position in evaluation or data) involved in the assessment of data systems, which can help with technology buy-in and organizational evaluation capacity.
