A new resource for evaluation commissioning - Kopanya

19 Feb 2024 8:30 AM | MNEA admin (Administrator)
Last year we conducted research on evaluation commissioning for a course at Claremont Graduate University. As part of the course requirements, we designed an online community, Kopanya. We would like to share the key findings of the study, and encourage you to sign up here to attend one of two scheduled sessions dedicated to sharing the research findings. 

From the study, it is evident that we need to re-envision the challenging dynamic between commissioning agencies and external valuators, if we wish to design quality evaluations that are truly impactful and taking advantage of the skills and competencies evaluators offer. 

Kopanya is an online community that focuses on improving the working dynamic between the parties, while simultaneously making the commissioning process more collaborative and efficient for both. Click here for some compelling reasons why changing the commissioning process is long overdue and necessary.

 As we implement Kopanya to evaluate its real world appeal and value to the evaluation community, we encourage you to join its next exciting phase of development by signing up here. Signup is free for evaluators. Commissioners can sign up for a free, mahala package or contact us here should they be interested in a personalized signup discount. 

As part of the implementation process, we have invested some time to make the change process easier and less daunting by documenting what you can expect from Kopanya. We have developed seven short "how-to" commissioner videos and four evaluator videos to offer a brief but complete overview to use the Kopanya platform. The videos range between one and six minutes. Don’t wait! Sign up and join the Kopanya community.
