Evaluation

System Wide Solutions is the “go to” place to get the information you need to make decisions about how best to help your program be more successful or demonstrate it is evidence based. We work with government and private organizations to gather, interpret and use the information they need to achieve their goals. We give the same attention to all our customers, no matter what the size.

SWS provides these services for school, out-of-school-time, juvenile justice, social service, long term care, disability and other programs. We are an independent company owned by its employees. We are big enough to take on most jobs but small enough to pay attention to the specific needs of your program. We’ve been around for over 21 years. Our staff is diverse in age, combining  fresh ideas with experience. We know time and money are precious in these trying times, so we conduct high quality work at low cost. We support you in meeting your goals for your clients or students by providing your team with the kind of information you need to continuously improve your programs. We help you answer three questions- What? So What? Now What?

 

What?
So What?
Now What?

To know what is happening with your students, in your schools, in your community with your program, you need to answer the question What? We can help you do that through:

  • Online, real time information systems designed for you that use data downloaded from your existing systems.
  • Focus groups.
  • Interviews.
  • Surveys.
  • Document reviews.
  • Program observations.

All the information in the world won’t do you any good unless it has meaning to you. We can help you with that through:

  • Ready-made statistical reports in the information systems we develop for you that are available 24/7.
  • Analysis of qualitative data, like focus groups and interviews.
  • Statistical analysis of quantitative data.
  • Combining analysis of qualitative and quantitative data together.
  • Providing consultation to help you think through findings and interpretations.

Once you understand and have given meaning to information, it is time to decide what to do. SWS will help you with that by:

  • Facilitating and documenting discussions and decisions.
  • Providing written reports and summaries.
  • Helping develop plans and schedules.
  • Providing expertise when possible.
