Program Evaluation for the Homelessness Sector

Practice Activity 2D

Decide whether you will develop a survey or an interview guide to collect your data. 

  1. Write 3-5 survey or interview questions. Think about questions that would provide “indicators” of change, in the program you want to evaluate.
  2. Test these questions on a partner, and get feedback.
  3. Could these questions be integrated into your current data collection process? When would these questions need to be asked in order to capture possible changes?
Question Can the question be added to an existing process or will you need to plan a new collection activity? When will you ask the questions (before, during or after the program)?
