Evaluation and Research

Evaluation and research are important activities that inform the planning, delivery, and reporting of CASA’s programs and services. The Evaluation and Research team (E&R) seeks to support evidence-informed decision making to ensure the best outcomes for CASA’s children, families, staff, and partners. The team’s core functions include:

  • Program Evaluation: Program evaluation uses “a systematic method for collecting, analyzing, and using information to answer basic questions about a program - and to ensure that those answers are supported by evidence.” CASA’s E&R team works with programs to identify their goals, select appropriate indicators, collect and analyze data, and prepare reports.

  • Organizational Performance Measurement: We collect, analyze, and report information regarding the performance of the organization and our progress towards our goals. The E&R team also tracks quality improvement initiatives and manages the Accreditation process.

  • Research: We conduct both retrospective and prospective research at CASA. Research activities include completing ethics submissions, creating and analyzing data sets, preparing manuscripts, and a variety of other communications.
