At MNA, we take time to better understand all our clients’ needs especially when it comes to communicating evaluation results more effectively to a wider audience. One of our clients, Front Range Community College in Fort Collins, CO, received a USDE-funded Title III Institutional Capacity Grant last fall. MNA was hired as their external evaluators. In order to better assess their 14 program objectives across five years in multiple locations, we have developed a data dashboard to visually communicate just-in-time formative data to all the stakeholders. This tool provides performance-related information that is consolidated and arranged on a single screen so that the information can be monitored at a glance.
