Evaluation

TEI creates a collection of parenting stress and resilience literature

The Tribal Evaluation Institute (TEI) compiled published articles (n=33) related to parenting stress and resilience from peer-reviewed journals for Tribal Home Visiting grantees. Implementation and Expansion Grantees (Cohort 2) can use this literature to inform rigorous local program evaluations focused on these topics. The articles summarized in the collection are specific to parenting stress and/or resilience in the context of home visiting or among American Indian and Alaska Native communities. This Excel resource identifies the following information for each included article (as applicable) –

  • Purpose of the paper
  • Relevant definitions
  • Main findings/conclusions
  • Research/evaluation question(s)
  • Target population
  • Study design
  • Intervention
  • Relevant measures/tools
  • Link to the article

Grantee Led Evaluations in Tribal MIECHV

Grantee-Led Evaluations in the Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program:

A Compilation of Grantee Evaluation Plan Profiles

In 2018, TEI created a compilation of Tribal Home Visiting Program grantees’ evaluation plan profiles that introduce and describe the grantees evaluation studies. The profiles are designed for evaluators, program implementers, and federal staff who are looking to assess program impact in complex community contexts and may be most useful for individuals thinking about evaluating tribal home visiting and/or early education initiatives. They can be used as resources for the development and implementation of future evaluations in tribal communities, as well as to inform evaluation-related policies and grant requirements for tribal funding recipients. Each profile presents a description of the program, a summary of their evaluation plan, and information about their evaluation team. Grantees reviewed, provided feedback, and approved their Evaluation Plan Profiles. Grantees also received local approval for the dissemination of these profiles, as desired by their community.

Evaluation Capacity Readiness Assessment Checklist

Tribal MIECHV Evaluation Capacity Readiness Assessment Checklist (2017)

The Evaluation Capacity Readiness Assessment Checklist (ECR) was developed to help Tribal MIECHV grantees prepare to evaluate their home visiting services. The ECR is a self-assessment tool focused on examining organizational and team readiness to engage in evaluation activities. The assessment process can help grantees determine the areas of their program and organization that may need to be strengthened to be fully prepared to plan, launch, and implement an evaluation. The ECR should be conducted before evaluation questions are developed, as the results can inform what is feasible and appropriate for the program and organization. While the ECR was developed for Tribal MIECHV grantees, it is applicable to any program seeking to evaluate their services and activities.
