Evaluation Plans   

While the content varies from class to class, we will measure our success in achieving the programs' goals in the following ways: By keeping attendance sheets for all classes: Attendance sheets will be compiled into weekly program reports. By keeping class journals for all classes: Journals will be written by the instructor for each class and are sent to all staff. In addition, journals will be posted on the Internet, where they can be reviewed by staff, board members and donors. By keeping a portfolio for each class: We will maintain a computer portfolio for each class, which includes finished products as well as other work generated during each class. By conducting quizzes. Students will be tested on basic class competencies.  


To reach the awareness level intended, dissemination will be supported by communication materials, such as a web site, a blog, a wiki, news letters, leaflets and posters. Important are also good, long-term relations to national and local media. In addition to this, project members will participate at conferences and workshops, and such activities will also be arranged within the project.
