    8931_Needs Assessment and Impact Evaluation Toolkit: Building the Evaluation Capacity of Ontario CAPC/ CPNP Projects

    This capacity-building project was tailored to early childhood and prenatal programs in the Ontario Network of CAPC/CPNP Projects. The Centre for Community Based Research consulted with stakeholders to inform the design of a digital toolkit for needs assessment and impact evaluation. The toolkit built was an interactive website with training materials (e.g., text-based descriptions, training slides, step-by-step guide, list of external resources, custom-made videos). Elements of the toolkit were piloted at workshops with Ontario CAPC/CPNP project staff, providing feedback for the finished product with the added benefit of training staff.
