Welcome to Career Centre Evaluation: A Practitioner's Guide, a customized online resource to help university career centres think about and design effective evaluation strategies. This guide provides an orientation to how and why to evaluate, along with a series of templates that can be used and adapted to your context.

This guide contains theory, case studies, and ready-to-use templates and tools covering such topics as:

• choosing an evaluation framework and approach
• scaling the approach to the needs of your centre
• creating timelines and implementing evaluation activities
• eporting and using evaluation results for quality improvement, influencing, and marketing

Each career centre will have its own evaluation interests and priorities – by providing case studies of the experiences at several offices, along with a variety of tools and templates, this guide is intended to show how evaluation can be adapted to the unique needs of your particular situation.
