Arts Education Assessment and Grantee Capacity Building for the Greater Good

Sunday, October 29, 10:00am – 11:30am

Organized by Wendy Liscow, Education Program Director, The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.

Presented by Wendy Liscow, Education Program Director, The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation; and Deborah Ward, Principal, Ward Consulting.

How can funders create a learning culture around data collection that serves both the foundation and its grantees and helps the arts education sector tell a collective story of impact? The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has developed data collection dashboards for grantees and school district partners, as well as survey tools for collective impact assessment. Through these tools and combined with group and one-on-one assessment training, grantees have developed new practical evaluation skills. Presenters will demonstrate the tools, preview new online training curriculum that builds grantee evaluation capacity, and share the success of these efforts in Trenton, Newark, and across New Jersey.
