Lisa Raphael, Ph.D. has over ten years of research and evaluation experience in education. Her work incorporates program design, research and evaluation, and organizational learning, through a collaborative, strengths-based, process-oriented approach. She is skilled in helping individuals and organizations identify relationships between their strategies/activities and outcomes and in documenting progress and outcomes through evaluation. She provides the following services:
Facilitate planning and implementation of program activities and outcomes. Develop organizational and/or project logic model or roadmaps, which outline strategic connections between resources, activities, and outcomes. Logic models provide a comprehensive understanding of program components (what and why), facilitate the development of an evaluation plan, and promote staff reflection. Construct an implementation plan, which identifies critical tasks, schedule, and roles. Define performance objectives and indicators, which clarify project goals. Prepare literature reviews, which summarizes existing literature. If needed, develop the evaluation section of a grant proposal and/or review existing proposals and applications.
Establish or refine evaluation processes. Develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for the organization, or a blueprint for monitoring different types of programs. Develop an evaluation plan, which details data collection and analysis plans. Refine existing evaluation instruments and/or create new evaluation instruments. Train current staff to collect evaluation data.
Assess progress and impact. Collect ongoing quantitative and/or qualitative data (e.g., surveys, interviews, focus groups, documents), which are specified in the evaluation. Serve as a formative thought partner while sharing data.
Prepare and disseminate results. Prepare user-friendly and audience-specific reports and/or presentations.
