The way forward II: Measurement for human service programs in American Indian and Alaska Native communities: Meeting summary, November 3-4, 2015, National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, District of Columbia

On November 3-4, OPRE held the meeting "The Way Forward II: Measurement for Human Service Programs in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities" at the National Museum of the American Indian. This meeting built on the seminal meeting The Way Forward: ACF Research with American Indians and Alaskan Natives, which was held in April 2014. Over sixty researchers, federal staff, and grantees who work with AIAN communities gathered to discuss challenges and priorities for measurement development. The meeting was structured over two days to cover four broad topics including: the role of tribal sovereignty and community participation in measure development; cultural adaptation and measurement of implementation fidelity; performance measurement for programs serving tribal communities; and measuring strengths and protective factors in AIAN communities. Academic researchers, federal staff, contracted researchers, and grantees gave presentations. Staff from the meeting planning committee moderated the presentations and facilitated questions and discussion between presentations. The meeting was not designed to generate consensus; rather, it was intended to generate a range of perspectives on the issues discussed. (author abstract)
