The User’s Guide for Evaluating Learning Outcomes from Citizen Science is a resource designed to make evaluation easy to understand and easy to execute. It shows how project leaders can use evaluation techniques to not only demonstrate their programs’ effectiveness but also understand how their programs operate and help them achieve their goals. It is designed to be used by citizen science practitioners who want to evaluate project outcomes.
The guide includes a practical overview of techniques, tips, and best practices for conducting evaluations as well as a glossary of terms and an extensive set of templates and worksheets to help with evaluation planning and implementation. It is a very good tool for assessment and a must-have for every citizen science project, which is very RRI.
