The Training Seminar 

Priority One:  Evaluation Strategies for Project Effectiveness

This learning event is designed for staff and leadership personnel employed in, participating in, or preparing for employment in projects funded under the Federal TRIO Programs, in the area of record keeping, reporting student and project performance, and the rigorous evaluation of project performance in order to design and operate a model program.  

The Training Seminar is a two day training delivery that offers face to face, "real time" training experience, on a range of topics designed to strengthen the knowledge and skill of the TRIO staff.



Through lectures, discussion, practical exercises, case studies, role playing, independent readings, and reflection activities, this session provides training on program evaluation, strategies to determine student and program effectiveness, and strategies for data collection that support the Annual Performance Report and continuous program improvement.  Participants will explore strategies of determining progress towards project outcomes.


Specifically, training participants will:

  • Define what is meant by “evidence based”

  • Identify the components of program fidelity

  • Use evidence based models to refine their project logic model

  • Distinguish between acceptable program adaptations, or adjustments to their project based on the characteristics of their target population

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of a program service or program component for their TRIO program

  • Justify program changes based on key results and indicators
