Trainers and community educators know that evaluation is an essential part of the education process. On the topic of sexual assault and sex offenders, the stakes are particularly high and our need to ensure we are meeting our goals equally so. Through audience feedback, we find out whether we are hitting the mark in terms of the content and style of our presentations; we find out whether our audience is walking away with the knowledge or attitudes we are trying to convey and which they need to make good choices for themselves and their families. With this information, we can adjust our presentations to better meet our education goals and better satisfy the needs of our audiences. Because we believe so strongly in the process of evaluation, we have included an evaluation form as part of this curriculum. Feel free to use it or adapt it according to the kinds of feedback you and your team would find most useful.
We encourage you to send copies or a summary of completed evaluations to CSOM:
