Indigenous-led Evaluation

We offer two types of certification:
Honouring Reconciliation in Evaluation and The Waawiyeyaa Evaluation Tool

Honouring Reconciliation in Evaluation

Our full course on Honouring Reconciliation in Evaluation is taught over 4 one-day workshops. During this learning process you will gain the knowledge and tools to integrate Indigenous-led evaluation practice in your organization or program. Each workshop comes complete with the manual, workbook, and tools.

Recognition and Certification

Each workshop comes with a Letter of Recognition of participation. Upon mastering the full 4-Workshop Series you will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement commemorating your journey in learning to apply reconciliation practices within the field of evaluation. This certification is awarded upon the completion of a skill testing exam which you undertake online within one-month of taking your last workshop in the series. You can ask to be tested, as early as, completing Workshop 1 (while we do recommend completing all 4 workshops) and when you pass the exam, you will receive the Certificate of Achievement. The test is timed and must be completed within a 24 hour period but the online time spent answering questions must not exceed two hours. Testing for this Certification will begin in May 2017. You will receive a scoring grid for each of the test domains, as well as a final test score and a notification as to your certification status.
