Services

Consortium collaborates with our clients to bring to develop the skills, experience and tools needed to build your organization’s capacity to innovate, improve, and scale.

Curriculum Development

and

Program Design

We work with clients in all stages of program design or planning, to help clarify the desired program outcomes, define the program’s strategy, and determine which processes will best achieve the program’s goals.  We can guide clients in using data and research to develop or improve their programs and help develop a plan for program evaluation. We help clients think through both process and outcome evaluations and incorporate the use of both qualitative and quantitative data.

 Diversity,

Equity and Inclusion

Diversity training is any program designed to facilitate positive intergroup interaction, reduce prejudice and discrimination, and generally teach individuals who are different from others how to work together effectively. CRDP works with the team to design DEI trainings and provide technical assistance to support your organizational goals.

Survey Design,

Data Collection,

and Analysis

Data collection throughout the life of the program is crucial to determining the program’s success. We offer support with designing and implementing methods of data collection, and with analyzing the information they yield, including:

  • Paper or online surveys
  • Focus groups
  • Telephone or in-person interviews
  • Impact data such as test scores, graduation rates, program completions, etc.

Research and Evaluation

Research and Evaluation design involves deciding which evaluation or research questions you want to answer and determining how to answer these questions. A careful evaluation design helps program managers and funders assess progress, identifies barriers and facilitators,  determines whether the evidence of progress is valid and reliable, and allows staff to adjust in order to enhance future effectiveness. We offer support in both the design and the implementation of research and evaluation plans, as well as documenting outcomes and creating reports that may be required for stakeholders, partners, and funders.

Program Analysis


Program evaluation is a systematic method for collecting, analyzing, and using information to answer questions about projects, policies and programs, particularly about their effectiveness and efficiency.

We offer a full range of program evaluation services, including:

  • Determining evaluation designs and data collection methods aligned to project process objectives, outcomes, and program performance measures
  • Developing logic models, theories of change, visual results frameworks, and other evaluation-related tools
  •  Assessing program fidelity, including inter-rater reliability practices
  • Conducting literature and document reviews
  • Collecting qualitative data, including focus groups, in-depth individual interviews, case studies, and program observations
  •  Compiling quantitative data, including student or client outcomes, surveys, and content assessments
  • Formative reporting for program improvements

Consortium supports our clients through face-to-face and virtual training sessions.  We collaborate with our clients to build a portfolio of training practices that aligns to their values and needs.
