Program Evaluation

FRONTIER21 works in partnership with schools and youth-oriented programs to develop research strategies that are responsive to their core goals and needs. Our expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research methods allows our staff to develop tools and conduct research and analysis that provides targeted information at key decision-making points.

As members of the American Evaluation Association, we adhere to the highest standards of research methods, and we bring to our clients a knowledge of evaluation techniques developed across many fields of social research. Our Evaluation Toolbox includes:
