Research and Evaluation
The Cloudburst Group has extensive experience conducting research and evaluations, including pilot and scoping studies, impact and performance evaluations, as well as needs assessments and environmental scans. Well-versed in both single and multi-site evaluations, we have conducted small studies and large evaluation designs for state and federal clients that include USAID, HUD, SAMHSA, and CDC. Our evaluation designs and data collection methodologies employ both quantitative and qualitative techniques, depending on the needs of the client and resources available.
The Cloudburst Group applies both experimental and non-experimental methods, with experience developing online data collection instruments, survey and sampling designs, interview guides, and the presentation of analysis and impact findings in easy-to-understand final reports. We are currently developing Rapid-cycle Evaluation frameworks for quality improvement program evaluations in the public health and housing sectors.
