Evaluation Questions Checklist
Virtually all evaluation guidance materials stress the need for good evaluation questions, yet the evaluation literature generally has provided only broad guidance on developing them. To help get to good questions–questions that are likely to lead to actionable evaluation findings–we created a checklist for use in assessing potential evaluation questions. The list is grounded in the evaluation literature and has benefitted from the practice wisdom of many evaluators inside and out of CDC.

Finding the Right People for Your Evaluation Team
Broad stakeholder engagement is an essential element of the National Asthma Control Program’s approach to evaluation. People who have been included in evaluation planning and implementation are more likely to help ensure that the findings, which represent an investment of their time, are put to use. And so it follows that the evaluator is but one member of a team of people necessary to make the most of your evaluation.
We have created this packet to help you think about how to build your evaluation team. It includes a sample job description for an evaluator; a list of evaluator competencies; and sample letters for recruiting members of your strategic and individual evaluation planning teams.
