Join AmeriCorps’ Office of Research and Evaluation and guest speakers from Mathematica on Wednesday, Nov. 3, to discuss tools to help you improve outcomes and reach through scaling.
This webinar will highlight AmeriCorps’ partnership with Mathematica on the Scaling Evidence-Based Models Research Project and showcase the web-based Scaling Checklist: Assessing your Level of Evidence and Readiness Tool (SCALER Tool). This tool consists of a series of interactive checklists that organizations can complete to help identify the strengths, weaknesses, and gaps of the interventions they hope to scale, as well as their organizational readiness to support scale up. The tool also identifies potential ways organizations can strengthen interventions as needed.
During this webinar you will:
- Learn about the objectives of the research projects and the resources generated (research, case studies, guides, checklists, and tools)
- Learn about the implementation science and scaling research that informs the framework for the tool
- Understand how the tool is designed to support community-based organizations interested in self-assessing their readiness to scale their interventions
- Watch an interactive demonstration of the tool
