Project Details

What We Need
  • A set of key metrics to regularly track
  • Spreadsheet tool to collect data on key metrics with accompanying tables and graphs for analysis
  • Training for best practices on data collection
  • Training on how to use the spreadsheet and analyze key metrics
  • Note: This project does not include data entry or analysis
Additional Details

TREC is growing and we need support in identifying the metrics we should collect.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have key programs that we're looking to evaluate, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have already collected data which we can share, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,868 , allowing us to further support teachers in the region with meaningful professional learning opportunities.

This project is important as it will help us with program evaluation and increase our fundraising effectiveness. Additionally, it will help us identify metrics to continue collecting and those to stop, making us more efficient.
