About the Training

Originally offered as a two and one-half day on-location training in Portland, Oregon in September of 2011, the training serves as a resource for centers in identifying the outcomes they want to achieve, regularly measuring their progress, and using what they learn to improve their programs and to document their successes. If you focus on the outcomes you want to achieve, you'll put the primary emphasis where it ought to be - on the positive changes you want to see in your Center’s IL program and in the community.

Some of the highlights of the training:

  • What an outcome is
  • What a logic model is and how a logic model is useful
  • Lessons learned from NCIL’s outcome measures field test
  • What challenges remain in measuring CIL outcomes
  • How to develop measurable indicators for these outcomes
  • How to identify sources, methods, and procedures to measure outcomes
  • Two main ways to use outcome information
  • Why it’s wise to focus on improvement, not reporting
  • Tools to help understand outcome findings
  • Steps to improve your CIL’s outcomes in the future
