ABOUT THE GROUP
The Capital Area Evaluation Network is a community of practice of capital area evaluators, formed for the purpose of sharing our collective evaluation knowledge to improve our evaluation practice. Meetings are informal and involve sharing techniques and tools and discussing shared readings. During our first three meetings, members have shared their knowledge of the following techniques: outcome mapping, outcome harvesting, ripple effects mapping, most significant change technique, and integrating the CDC evaluation model with project management software.
