Assessment (HC): Evaluation

About Evaluation

                                                                                                                               What is evaluation?

                                              The process of reviewing results of data collection and analysis and making decisions based on data

Recent studies demonstrate that libraries which have instituted assessment measures often do not use the data once they have collected it. The challenge is to construct questions that address substantive issues, analyze the responses to identify trends as well as important individual answers, and make changes promptly in programs and practices based on user input.
