Formative + Summative Evaluation

Harder+Company designs and conducts rigorous, mixed-method evaluations that help organizations understand both impact and implementation. Our formative evaluations look at an organization’s activities and operations in order to help them align their plans, the evidence base, and how the work is executed. Our summative evaluation work focuses on the changes that happen as a result of a specific program, strategy, or initiative. Through either approach, our clients typically use findings to make decisions about whether to continue, change, and/or expand their work.
