Since its start, evaluation has been used by NYC Opportunity to drive programmatic improvement, measure effectiveness and impact, and to help the City determine what programs are effective- or not. In addition to assessing its own programs, NYC Opportunity also partners with City agencies and other Mayoral offices to lead or assist with evaluations of key citywide Mayoral initiatives. Evaluations are conducted by independent external evaluation firms. Methods used are specific to each initiative, and employ a wide range of qualitative and quantitative strategies.
Reports from evaluations of programs in NYC Opportunity’s portfolio are listed with descriptions of each initiative here.
