“Why evaluate,” you ask? Because ticket sales and attendance figures don’t tell the whole story. Evaluation provides insight into how visitors experience your institution’s programs, the real reasons why teachers sign up for tours, and how to boost employee morale. This workshop is a beginner’s guide for anyone interested in conducting evaluative projects.
