Impact Measurement - Simple Measures, Big Results 

Mention "evaluation" to a nonprofit leader and it may conjure up visions of complex measures, expensive consultants, privacy concerns, and high overhead. Yet there are lightweight, empirically sound outcome measures that can be collected, analyzed, and shared by virtually any organization. In this course, we will walk through selecting, collecting, and analyzing such measures and then creating dynamic dashboards in Power BI to share the results.

 

This course was initially offered in August 2019 with a forum moderated by a TechSoup Data expert to respond to learner questions in real time. The forum has since been closed to new postings. However, the course is open and available to everyone.
