Evaluation & Summary:

Attendees must be given the opportunity to evaluate a workshop after it is complete. Submit a copy of the evaluation form distributed to attendees, or you may use RID's standard evaluation form. A tally and summary of the evaluations must be provided on the Evaluation Summary form.

If you'd like information on how to set up electronic evaluations, contact us at cmp@pc-rid.org.
