A national evaluation of the TIS program will take place. The evaluation of the TIS program for the next phase of the program will be split into a two-part process. The Cultural and Indigenous Research Centre Australia (CIRCA) will conduct part A of the TIS evaluation (implementation and process evaluation). The Australian National University (ANU) will conduct part B (impact evaluation).
The TIS Program Logic 2023-26 is an overview of what the TIS program is trying to achieve over the next implementation period. It has been developed by CIRCA for Part A of the TIS evaluation. It maps out the inputs, activities, and outputs, as well as the desired short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes for the program. Short-term outcomes are focused on changes in people’s understanding, medium-term outcomes are focused on changes in people’s intentions or motivations, and long-term outcomes are about behavioural changes. The diagram includes small icons so you can easily see which stakeholders the different outcomes refer to.
The implementation and process evaluation of the TIS program from 2018/19 – 2021/22 was conducted by CIRCA. The evaluation looked at:
