Pre/Post Surveys | Making the Case for Community-Run In-Prison Programs
This first ever webinar, presented by Angela Irvine from Ceres Policy Research, will help prepare TPW coalition members to run our own assessment and evaluation on our programs! We know that evidence-based research is expensive and time consuming, and that many of our member groups do not have the resources to implement assessments in addition to running quality programs inside CDCR. We also know that the California legislature and CDCR are applying increasing pressure to deliver evidence-based programs.
In this webinar, we talk about:
Understanding what constitutes “research”
The measures and framework that CDCR is working within (“criminogenic” needs)
How to develop that work outside this framework
Workshop sample survey questions for your group
Discover the benefits of collaborative evaluation.
