What evaluation tools should I use for the CBITS program?

Data collection and quarterly reporting is a requirement of PCCD grant-funded programs.  The data collection process is essential as it serves multiple purposes.  Evidence-based program providers perform data collection processes in order to know that the program is having the desired impact on the children, youth and/or families that the program targets.  It also allows for quality assurance and monitoring of the fidelity to the model, ensuring that the program is being delivered in the way it was designed.  Lastly, the process allows for program providers to communicate their great impact to key stakeholders across communities, current and future referral sources as well as future funders to sustain programming.
