Dollar Works 2

Evaluation Resources

The Dollar Works 2 curriculum includes several resources to help evaluate your program to make sure you are meeting educational goals. You can gather three types of information:

You as the program instructor decide what level of information gathering is most appropriate given the educational setting.


You can measure two types of outcomes.

The curriculum includes end-or-unit or end-of-series evaluation tool(s) to gather this level of evaluation data.

Program Impact

“Program impact” refers to learners’ responses about how they have actually changed their behavior.


"Feedback" includes general information (number of participants, etc.) and the participant (“learner”) response to the learning environment (room set-up, time of the program, general feelings about the learning experience, etc.).

A tool for gathering this level of information is not included in the curriculum because sponsoring agencies or groups usually provide their own tool for this information. If no tool is available, learners can be asked to provide additional comments on the end-of-unit or end-of-series evaluations that are included in the curriculum.

Online Reporting System

Purchasers of this curriculum have the option to enter evaluation data in the Dollar Works 2 online reporting system. By entering training evaluation datan into the online reporting system, customized evaluation reports can be produced to show outcomes and program impact. Contact Financial Capability if you are interested in using the online reporting system.
