Title VI National Training and Technical Assistance Forum and Listening Session Title VI Program Evaluation May 1, 2007 Bob Hornyak U.S. Administration on Aging
How does AoA use Data? Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 and PART AoA Performance Budget Congressional Budget Justification Program Evaluations Information for other Federal and non-Federal organizations Information for general public
The data that grantees provide to AoA show that the programs and services provided through the Older Americans Act are achieving the intended results.
AoA focuses on three areas of performance measurement: Improve Program Efficiency Improve Client Outcomes Improve Effective Targeting to Vulnerable Elders
Performance measures: help show how the programs are structured, what processes or procedures are actually done, and what the program is producing.
Performance measures tell us whether the goals of the program are being met. Measures fall primarily into four categories: Inputs Outputs Outcomes Impacts
Inputs – refer to things that the system uses to make other things happen. Examples: Funding – OAA and other federal funds, local community funds, private and nonprofit funds People - AoA, SUA, AAA, Tribes, Community Service Providers, Volunteers Technology – Strategic use of information technology Laws – Related legislation, Executive Orders, policies, and regulations
Outputs refer to specific things that the program will produce immediately. Examples: number of trainings number of people served units/hours of services expenditures
Outcomes refer to the results of the outputs, usually expressed as an increase or a decrease. Examples: percentage increase in people served through home and community-based services improved knowledge increase in the proportion of expenditures on HCBS rather than institutional care.
Impact refers to the overall or long term goal attainment: Improved health and well-being of elders and their caregivers
