Learning Agenda

Learning agendas, or evidence-building plans, are systematic plans for identifying and addressing priority questions relevant to the programs, policies, and regulations of an agency. They identify, prioritize, and establish strategies to develop evidence to answer important short- and long-term questions including:

  • Strategic questions about how the agency meets its mission(s), including about how programs, policies, and regulations function.
  • Operational questions about the agency’s operations like human resources, grant-making procedures, financial systems and tracking, and internal processes.

Learning agendas should be iterative, flexible, transparent, and tailored to both meet an individual agency’s needs and address agency-specific challenges to developing evidence.

Evidence Plan

Evidence plans operationalize the learning agenda and are a prioritized list of evidence projects based on a one year cycle. The evidence plan is revised each June based on the existing four year learning agenda and current department evidence needs.
