We are conducting a mixed method evaluation of PAWS of Purpose. Thus far we have:
- Developed a conceptual framework to guide the evaluation
- Reviewed, refined, and finalized research questions
- Drafted the evaluation plan, including determining the sample, developing data collection methods (surveys, interviews), and creating the analysis plan
We are working with AFF to finalize the evaluation plan. We anticipate collecting data on 10 teams of inmates. For each team, data will be collected from the three key constituents: 1) AFF program providers, 2) Rikers staff, and 3) inmates.
