Demonstrating Evidence Across the Project Cycle
OSEP Hosts National Summit and Launches New Attract, Prepare, Retain Resource Page
The 2020 OSEP Summit provided an opportunity by bringing together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event was held over three days and participants had the opportunity to register for each event individually or attend all three. An archive of the event can be found on the 2020 OSEP National Summit webpage. OSEP also launched a new Attract, Prepare, Retain Resources Page that provides research and resources for stakeholders to explore potential strategies, innovative approaches, and additional resources regarding this topic!

This interactive tool discusses the different types of evidence that can be used throughout the project cycle to, for example, support theories of action, choice of interventions, and provide formative feedback on how project activities are progressing. It also discusses how to use the evidence collected to monitor progress and fidelity in implementation with the goal of demonstrating ultimate project results, or long-term outcomes. For each phase, the tool identifies what types of evidence might be collected, where they might be found, or how they might be produced and used. The tool includes links to resources that grantees and evaluators might use when evaluating their project.
