Program Evaluation

Variability among cultural organizations’ programs is significant—programs can range from simple one-time presentations, to multiple-year programs with a constant audience, to multiple-year programs with several organizational partners and a continually changing audience. RK&A has conducted program evaluations of all types, often designing multipart studies to address complex situations. Sometimes these evaluations examine the outcomes of a program against the program’s intended outcomes; sometimes program evaluation also includes a process evaluation, which examines interrelationships among all the collaborators.

RK&A Case Study

Arts 101 School Program

A formative evaluation of an arts program

Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

Program evaluation almost always entails several data collection methods such as questionnaires, open-ended interviews, group discussions, and observations. Analyzing data from multiple methods, or triangulation, is an important strategy for strengthening a study design since each method reveals different aspects of a visitor’s experience. Data are collected at the end of a program for one-time programs and at established intervals during multiple-year programs. When program teams identify long-term outcomes, we contact participants several months after their program experience.

We recently conducted program evaluations for the following organizations. For a complete list of RK&A planning, evaluation, and research projects, please see All RK&A Clients.
