Evaluation tool – Three words

Evaluation tool – Three words

What is this tool?

A quick, focused way to get the feedback you need.  Ask your participants to give you 3 words about your event. Choose your questions carefully and you’ll be able to get a feel for their experience, but also focus on specific parts – e.g. what worked well, what could be improved, how it made them feel etc

What kind of activities can I evaluate with it?

This tool is particularly effective for use with secondary school students and interested adults, but works with most audiences and for most types of events.

When should I use it?

This tool is best suited to use at the end of (or after) an event.

What do I need?

  • Post-it notes or scraps of paper – approximately 3 per audience member
  • Pens/pencils (one per audience member)
  • Box, wall display or other place for people to leave their responses once completed
