Evaluation efforts will help determine the direction and effectiveness of the project. Initial evaluations will establish a baseline for the project and help to refine the project’s approach. Without this baseline it would be impossible to determine the effectiveness of the project.
Survey tools developed and refined by the National Center for Safe Routes to School (www.saferoutesinfo.org/data-central/evaluation-tools) will be used, along with professional judgment and citizen input, as the cornerstone of our evaluation process.
Working with the standard Pre and Post-project Surveys, we plan to conduct baseline and follow-up surveys to assist with the evaluation of various components of this project (e.g. Infrastructure improvements, Education, Enforcement and Encouragement)
