Description: 

This is the evaluation report for the first year of the NSF-funded WaterMarks project. It reflects an initial summary of available evidence about the intended outcomes of program activities to date, as well as commentary on how the project is using (or could use) this information moving forward. This report contains descriptions of embedded measures (i.e. anonymized drawings and reflections captured on a thematic postcard) included in community walks and  analyses of secondary data (i.e., interviews conducted by other members of hte project team), as well as reflections emerging from the evaluation team's "critical friend" role on the project. As the project matures, future evaluation reporting will engage participation data at a larger scale, a wider range of methods, and additional overarching questions, as described in the Background section of the report.

Appendix includes logic model.
