Assessment & Consulting Services

Harvard College Institutional Research provides the following Assessment Workshops & Consulting Services:
Harvard College Institutional Research (HCIR) is offering a series of 7 workshops for free, to help you assess the effectiveness of your services, programs, events, etc. using the approach of an Outcome-Based Assessment Process. We hope that this workshop series will provide a practical guide and framework of Assessment. If you are interested in how to create an Assessment Plan to understand the value and outcomes of your programs, services, seminars, and how to collect feedback for improvements using surveys, how to use Qualtrics, how to analyze survey data, or how to create tables/charts to share online or offline,… you can sign up for these workshops. At the end of the first two workshops, you will be able to create your assessment plan.
