We evaluate programs.

Our program evaluations assess policies and practices that support cycles of continuous improvement and help people understand the effects of public and philanthropic investments on institutional change. We conduct formative and summative evaluations and partner to help those involved understand results and apply lessons learned. 

Evaluation reports are usually confidential documents that help those engaged in the work understand successes and challenges, and that help funders evaluate the effectiveness of their investment. Through our evaluations, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience about transitioning big ideas into practice, and about common leverage points and pitfalls. Beginning in 2017 we will share high-level themes from the evaluations — keeping all identifying information regarding those involved in the evaluations confidential.

Our projects focus on issues such as:

INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS: EdInsights is partnering with the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office in a developmental evaluation of the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative, focusing on a host of professional learning opportunities within that system.

COLLEGE STUDENT SUCCESSAt its host campus, Sacramento State, EdInsights is helping colleagues evaluate student success programs, such as the Full Circle Project, which supports Asian American and Pacific Islander students through learning communities.

CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION/PATHWAYS DEVELOPMENT: EdInsights is evaluating a large-scale initiative to develop health sciences pathways in the Los Angeles Community College District, funded by the Department of Labor.
