A holistic approach to advancing community wellness

Focus on understanding

Our experienced evaluators start by understanding the history of your community and organization, program goals, existing resources, and relevant policies.

Iterative planning and collaboration

We turn understanding into action by collaborating with you to make ongoing improvements to the design of your evaluation.

Continuous support and communication

We provide ongoing technical assistance, ensuring that you have the data visualization and reporting tools you need to communicate effectively with stakeholders.

Our evaluation process

Step 1: Create an evaluation plan

Our team learns about your organization, the communities you serve, and your desired outcomes. We then design an evaluation that will get the most impactful outcomes. The evaluation plan has a clear timeline that shows when deliverables and key activities will happen. We’ll even write the evaluation portion of proposals free of charge.

When possible, we include and pay community members to participate in this and all stages of evaluation.

Step 2: Design logic models and measurement tools

Our team will create a logic model identifying the target groups and the key outcomes to be studied, then craft tailor-made evaluation surveys specifically for your audience.

Step 3: Collect and manage data

Recruitment challenges are prevented with our years of experience and numerous tools. We design a recruitment strategy and select incentives that are just right. Our team will recruit and collect data from participants, schedule interviews, distribute incentives, and manage the incoming data.

Step 4: Perform analysis and create reports

Our team designs summative reports so that you can see all the key takeaways from our statistical analysis. Our summaries are easy to follow and can be reshared with community stakeholders, parents, and public officials. The summaries are often used to justify a program, craft policy changes, and acquire new funding.

Step 5: Continue communicating

Seedling leadership works to keep you informed so that you always know the status of the evaluation project. Our process includes regularly scheduled meetings—usually monthly—and other communications.
