Research Consultation and Support
Social Research & Consulting, Inc. works with its clients on all levels to bring the greatest effect and in addition to our evaluation and research services, offers the service of research consultation and support. The purpose of research consultation and support is to meet our client’s own research needs to build their organization’s internal capacity including training, technical assistance, and logic models.
If any clients are interested in doing evaluations on their own, Social Research & Consulting, Inc. works with program staff to develop logic modes, evaluation plans, and data collection tools. We also provide advice to organizations on how to conduct focus groups, and surveys.
Training and Workshops
Social Research & Consulting, Inc. helps their clients with training and workshops to develop evaluation designs, select the research methods to collect data using specific methodology, and in searching how to analyze and report data. After the reporting we create action plans for using research results.
Our approaches include a training series, in which our participants gain tools to start the evaluation process for their organization.
Logic Model Development
We expect that logic models, or program outcome models, help shape the evaluation.
Social Research & Consulting, Inc. creates a clear understanding between desired outcomes and how to achieve these outcomes. We work with organizations to think about how those outcomes can be measured and what type of evaluation would work best.
Typically, this process engages all program key stakeholders via meetings to brainstorm about all assets, inputs, planned activities, expected outputs, and outcomes.
While we assist programs in conducting their own evaluation, through advice, document review, program development, and proposal writing, this is our approach to help any of our clients to use their research results with the greatest effect.
