The EPRE Consulting mission is to help education organizations meet the challenges they face in the rapidly changing educational environment by providing high quality evaluation and research services.

Program Evaluation

Many funding sources, governmental, philanthropic, and corporate, require recipients to engage the services of an external evaluator.  It is a great idea to involve your evaluator in the process of developing the funding proposal, to ensure that the evaluation plan is efficient, practical, and useful.  A strong evaluation plan improves chances for funding, and provides valuable input to keep the project on track.

My associates and I offer a comprehensive array of evaluation design, data collection, analysis, and reporting services.

Research Services

We can help you develop data collection strategies and instruments, develop and administer surveys and questionnaires, conduct group interviews, and analyze data.
