Practical Evaluation & Writing Workshops

About Us

WHO WE ARE

C. J. Quill & Associates, Inc., is a  woman- and minority-owned small business serving universities, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. Founded in 1995 by Joy Quill, we conduct STEM evaluations and teach an effective writing course that covers the principles promoted in the Plain Language Act.  


Joy Quill personally leads all of our engagements.  

Our Approach

  • We customize the evaluation to meet your needs, and work closely with you throughout the process. 
  • We use mixed methods to obtain the best evidence. Our methods include surveys, focus groups, interviews, observations, statistical and numerical analysis, content analysis, and document review.
  • Our findings are clear and objective.
  • Our recommendations are thoughtful, practical, and cost-effective. 
  • Our reports are easy to read and can be shared with funders "as is." You do not need to do a lot of rewriting.
  • We never miss a deadline.
