R for Eval is a co-production of Eric Einspruch and David Keyes. Two experienced evaluators based in Portland, they are both eager to share the power of R with others in the evaluation community..
Eric is an independent researcher and evaluator who has conducted a wide variety of studies over more than three decades, including small-scale evaluations, large multi-site evaluations, large-scale surveys, and randomized controlled trials. He has written two books on the use of statistical analysis software, and in recent years has increasingly used R as his data analysis tool of choice. He also teaches graduate, undergraduate, and certificate courses in program evaluation, research methods, and analytic research methods.
David is an independent researcher and evaluator with particular expertise in the application of technology to research. After completing his PhD in anthropology, he taught at Lewis and Clark College before entering the world of evaluation. He worked on the research team at the Oregon Community Foundation before striking out on his own. Now, as a consultant, he works with organizations throughout the United States, using R to help them analyze and visualize their data in ways that lead to positive change.
