Data dashboards are information management tools commonly used by businesses and large organizations to visually track, analyze, and display key metrics of performance.
More recently, non-profit organizations, schools, and grant-funded programs have discovered the utility of these customizable displays that often include tables, bar charts, line charts, and other visual displays of data. Dashboards allow organizations to compare multiple data points over time, organize data to easily show trends, and are therefore suitable for a variety of audiences.
An evaluation brief summarizes the results of several data collection strategies that, together, describe how a program was implemented and the extent to which it has achieved its desired outcomes.
Briefs can be tailored to a variety of audiences, include fewer or more data points, and can be customized to apply to different phases of program intervention (e.g., early intervention or end- of-program).
Survey Data Summaries
Using surveys to collect data can be an be an efficient way to better understand the benefits of a program or intervention.
The results of a surveys should be communicated just as efficiently, to allow a variety of stakeholders to review and understand important implications, and act quickly on them. Data summaries commonly present both quantitative and qualitative data and include descriptive program information and easy to review charts and tables.
