Urban Promise Zones Data and Evaluation Framework

Cover Page of Promise Zone Data and Evaluation Framework Desk GuideDesk Guide for Developing a Data and Evaluation Framework

The Promise Zone (PZ) Desk Guide is designed to walk users through the process of developing and using a PZ Data and Evaluation Framework. The Guide may be used as a stand-alone document, but may also be supplemented by reviewing materials from a series of four PZ training sessions below.

Upon reviewing the information and completing the activities outlined in the Guide, users will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of collecting data and be able to identify common measures for community engagement initiatives.
  • Define the elements of a data and evaluation framework for a community engagement initiative.
  • Strategize how to leverage partner and other resources to gather both qualitative and quantitative data.
  • Describe how data analysis and data visualization can be used to support data-driven policy.
  • Successfully develop a PZ Data and Evaluation Framework that tracks and evaluates the PZ’s progress toward achieving its goals, thus improving programmatic effectiveness.

Office Hours

Office Hours were available to the 14 participating PZs to supplement the webinar after each session. The purpose of the Office Hours was to provide individualized one-on-one assistance to the PZs to help with homework assignments and support the completion of a Data and Evaluation Framework.


Peer Convenings

Peer convenings provided an opportunity for the 14 PZs to learn about each other in an informal setting, exchange information, and ask questions of evaluation experts.

The meetings were held after each webinar session.
