This week, Jessica Weitzel and Caroline Taggart attended a 3-day course at The Evaluators’ Institute (TEI). The course, Linking Evaluation Questions to Analysis Techniques, addressed ways to apply appropriate statistical procedures, from t-tests to structural equation modeling, to real-world evaluation questions.

Participants also discussed the importance of clearly explaining to various audiences the implications and interpretation of chosen statistical procedures. All Via Evaluation evaluators have taken part in training through TEI, as well as the American Evaluation Association and other professional organizations.
