Interpret and Summarize your findings

Once you have collected your evaluation data it is important to share your evaluation findings with your partners as well as others in the community.  It is helpful to do this throughout the intervention so you can make “mid-course adjustments” rather than just at the end of the intervention.  In addition, by reviewing your evaluation data at regular intervals you will be able to determine if your evaluation methods are enabling you to collect the types of data you need to evaluate your intervention. You may want to work with evaluation experts and ask them to help you to interpret and summarize the findings in a way that is accessible to multiple audiences.
