The Creative Discovery Museum (CDM) will create a consistent and sustainable evaluation process for assessing the educational impact exhibits and programs have on audiences. CDM will build an ongoing culture of evaluation among its staff through workshops, professional development, internal meetings, and visits to other museums. The project will support a well-defined evaluation framework, assessment tools, cross-departmental monthly meetings dedicated to evaluation, and staff trained for evaluation to ensure successful implementation of the project. Evaluation of the project will be conducted to assess changes in staff attitudes toward evaluation, knowledge gained from the process and the ability to conduct evaluations for all programs and exhibits at CDM. With a consistent evaluation program, CDM can better understand and meet the needs of its audiences, creating more meaningful and lasting impactful experiences for visitors.
