How Sis Works

SIS means Service Information System. It is managed by LogicalOutcomes, a Canadian non-profit that provides evaluation and consulting. SIS is a tool that we use for our own evaluations. It has several elements:

  • A private SharePoint site where you can manage your evaluation tools, send out surveys and analyze your data.
  • A library of survey instruments, interviews and other data collection tools customized for your programs.
  • A growing registry of evidence-based measures and indicators that you can add to your library.
  • A powerful interactive data visualization tool that allows you to explore your data in depth and communicate results to your stakeholders. 

Sign up for a Basic Subscription and see whether that will meet your needs. We provide a starter pack of surveys and interview protocols that focus on gathering useful information from clients and staff.  We will be adding more instruments to the library as organizations request them, and they will be made available to everyone. 

Or even better, book a demo with us to see if it meets your needs. SIS is complicated and kind of hard to explain in writing.  

The measures that SIS uses in its surveys and data collection tools are free or open source. You can copy and use them in your own systems as long as you comply with their licensing terms. The instruments we create ourselves can be copied and reused under Creative Commons licensing. SIS charges fees for the effort to code metadata and design visualizations in Power BI. Costs vary from about $50 upward depending on complexity.  See the SIS CATALOG for ideas. 

You may not need to add instruments. We have created standard surveys and other data collection tools that can be customized for your own programs without extra cost. 

The Basic and Team SIS subscriptions are designed to be used by small non-profits and people without specialized evaluation expertise. SIS subscribers just need to know about confidentiality and ethical research practices to protect the privacy of vulnerable clients. We will provide training on request, or we can handle the whole evaluation for you. 

The expert subscription is for experienced evaluators or larger organizations that want more control over their evaluation tools. Experts will be able to create their own reports using Power BI and analyze raw data using their own tools (such as R or SPSS).
