Hi everyone:

How do you evaluate the success of an adult program? Do you go by the attendance or do you try to capture something more meaningful? Do you try to get people to fill out an evaluation? I would love to hear from folks on how they decide whether something was valuable for their community and worth the effort and cost to provide. I know we have no shortage of ideas, which means that selecting what programming to provide is definitely helped when it's based on....something. The success, or failure, of a program would certainly be a factor. Beyond your spidey sense, how do you know, what is the data you collect, that tells you something soared or something bombed.

Thanks in advance! I'm happy to summarize and send back out if others are interested.
