Our Approach and Our Philosophy
The Evaluation Group (TEG) is an independent evaluation firm with demonstrated experience in planning, implementing, and evaluating programs in education and other human service fields throughout the southeastern USA. Our offices are located in Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA. We work with customers to determine what they need to know and how to best collect and share this information. Our evaluation approach is both utilization-focused and participatory:
Our evaluations are designed to provide stakeholders with useful information that will assist them in decision-making. Our information gathering, data analysis, and reporting are timely, understandable, and relevant. Our clients can count on TEG for an evaluation plan that shares data in a matter of weeks—not months.
At TEG, evaluation is something we do with our customers, not to them. We work with program stakeholders to collaboratively identify methods, design instruments, determine data collection protocols, and select reporting formats.
Compliance with Standards and Principles
Our evaluations strictly adhere to the Program Evaluation Standards of the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation
In addition, we adhere to the Guiding Principles of the American Evaluation Association (AEA).
- Systematic Inquiry
- Integrity & Honesty
- Respect for people
- Responsibilities for general and public welfare
