Evaluation and research have played a significant role in our work from the start, as Arts Ed Collaborative has conducted original research in the region and examined what others’ research can tell us about effective practice. Since 2012, we have committed a full-time staff position to evaluation and worked to build evaluation into all of our core programs in an effort to assess everything from participants’ immediate reactions to long-term impact years later.
We create detailed evaluation reports at the conclusion of all our programs. We also include end-of-session evaluation forms after each day’s work. We’re happy to share our findings with you if you’re interested in learning more.
