Special Webinar Hosted by Moore Foundation
The Role of Federal Evaluation Activities in the “Evidence-Based” Policy and “Data-Driven” Government Movements
Presenter: Nick Hart
Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2019 2- 3 pm (EST)
In early 2019, a new federal law called the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (Evidence Act) established new expectations for how federal agencies support and engage in evaluation activities. As part of the broader evidence movement, the new law recognizes relationships across traditional disciplinary silos and outlines and expectation that federal agencies will better collaborate to produce and use evaluations to inform key decisions. This webinar will describe the contemporaneous policy environment for federal evaluation, offer insights about the role in the broader evidence movement, and discuss opportunities for interacting with emerging data strategies and planning processes that affect evaluators. Participants will gain an appreciation for the nuances of federal evaluation policy activities, develop an understanding of how the activities relate to other data policy reforms, and be introduced to opportunities for ongoing participation from the evaluation community.

If you’re like most evaluators, you want to create more visually engaging slides, but you don’t know where to start. You’ve probably searched for tips on the internet and found that there was a lot of information to sort through. It is hard to determine which tips are accurate, outdated, or wrong. This coffee break is for evaluators who want to cut through all the internet noise and know which tips are accurate and which ones can be ignored.
