Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC) has created a suite of evaluation materials to support youth development organizations in their continuous improvement work. The collection includes measurement tools, tip sheets, and planning documents for youth development leaders who are trying to build a strong data culture in their organizations. YDEKC’s Measurement Toolkit is aligned to the Washington State Quality Standards developed by School’s Out Washington.
The toolkit is organized into six sections:
Each section contains:
- A checklist that allows organizations to quickly assess evaluation practices against the core principles above
- PowerPoint presentations that provide background on key evaluation topics
- Tip sheets covering a range of evaluation activities
- Worksheets and planning tools to put learning into practice
YDEKC’s Measurement Toolkit resources can be used alone or in combination, and most can be adapted to suit a more specific purpose.
