Many out-of-school time programs want to learn more about how the children and youth they serve are faring. Outcome evaluations allow programs to do just that. This brief provides a basic review of outcome evaluations, discusses why they are important and when they are useful, and presents guidelines, strategies, and techniques for their use in out-of-school time programs. The brief also highlights the experience of an out-of-school time program that has conducted an outcome evaluation and provides a list of helpful evaluation resources. (Contains 28 endnotes.)[To access "Random Assignment Evaluation Studies: A Guide for Out-of-School Time Program Practitioners. Part 5 in a Series on Practical Evaluation Methods.
