Effective evaluations

Evaluation measures for CTLCs allow leaders to improve services and seek funding. It is quite important, therefore, thatleaders take these measures seriously.

It is not enough to count the number of participants in a workshop or a class offered for a discount rate. It is the learning that needsto be measured. So, evaluation measures need to be BOTH qualitative (anecdotes, impressions) and quantitative (hard numbers). The twoconstitute a credible evaluation process.

There are several evaluation measurement rubrics available. They need to work closely with your context, your community,your culture.

Suggested Reading:

Teachers Without Borders' research team strongly suggests that NGOs or other civil society groups adapt a suitableevaluation design to their existing needs and to take seriously the elements of such a design in their own training materials. We recommendhighly the frameworks established by ALNAP - The Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action ALNAP is aninternational, inter-agency forum working to improve learning, accountability, and quality across the humanitarian sector.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
