Virtual External Evaluation for ALL TRIO Programs 



NEC conducts online process-based evaluations to determine a Project’s success in delivering services to accomplish its objectives. NEC assesses the following components virtually throughout a designated timeframe:


  • Plan to Identify, Recruit, & Select Participants

  • Plan to Assess Needs & Plan to Monitor Academic Progress

  • Plan to Deliver Services to Participants

  • Academic & Supportive Activities, Services, & Workshops

  • Budget (Expenditures & Carryover) & External/Internal Monitoring Methods

  • Formative Evaluations (Review of Monthly Reports & Internal Goals)

  • Summative Evaluations (Review of APR and Participant/Staff/Agency/College Surveys)

  • Quality of Personnel & Institutional/Agency Commitment


Our process-based evaluation will provide TRIO Projects with the following benefits:


  • Improvement of the overall delivery and quality of services provided to its Participants;

  • Identification of necessary interventions and/or changes to certain program components to increase the impact of Project services on Participants;

  • Collection of data or outcome results for public relations and promoting Project services; and

  • Examination and description of effective programming components for duplication elsewhere within the institution, agency, and/or community.

$6,500 – Includes pre- and post-evaluation consultation.


After purchase, you will receive an email with instructions for scheduling your Virtual External Evaluation.
