At Worldfund, we measure what matters. Our dedicated Metrics & Evaluation team works closely with staff and participants to collect timely, relevant, and meaningful data on an on-going basis. All our data is used to help us learn what works well and what needs improvement on our programs so that we can provide the most effective training to educators and maximize our impact on students throughout Latin America.
Our data comes from three core categories/methods:
- Surveys of participants and students
- Site visits to schools
- State and national statistics and standardized tests
Education is the most important productive asset most people will ever own
