“The expertise that the evaluation specialists at ICI brought to designing the Minnesota High School Exit Form and the Postschool Follow-Up Interview Form helped us narrow our focus in order to meet federal reporting requirements and improve transition services for youth in Minnesota.” - Jayne Spain, Transition Specialist, Minnesota Department of Education

The Evaluation Group at the Institute on Community Integration, launched in Fall 2005, consists of a cadre of specialists offering evaluation services to programs and organizations that serve people with disabilities and other special needs, including schools, state and local education agencies, human service agencies, and workforce development agencies.

In fulfilling its mission of improving community services and supports for persons with disabilities, the Institute on Community Integration has always been deeply involved in policy, program, and service evaluations. The Evaluation Group continues this work and expands on it, providing high quality evaluation consultation, implementation, and training in local, state, and national settings that serve children, youth, and adults with disabilities and other special needs.
