One of the final important responsibilities for your event is to conclude with an evaluation. Evaluation reviews of your event can help with future planning, changes and improvements.
Evaluations may be completed by people in attendance at the event, as well as the individuals who coordinated the event. By distributing evaluations to all involved, you will be able to collect a more precise and accurate assessment of your event.
Types of evaluations:
There are generic evaluation forms which can be used, but it may be beneficial to create your own. In creating your own, you can target specifics of your event and assess whether objectives were met. While paper evaluations are commonly used you can also create evaluations to be completed online. If you are a student organization, OrgSync can be a great tool for this. Evaluations can contain quick questions that can be answered by circling or checking items, but the best information is often provided in open comment sections.Things to consider:
- Should this event be repeated in the future?
- Were the objectives of the event met?
- What went well during the event?
- What can be improved upon?
- What ideas/suggestions do you have for future events
