What is evaluation What is evaluation Presentation Transcript

  • What is Evaluation?
  • The first thing to point out is…..
  • Evaluation is the subjective interpretation of data collected during the monitoring of a project.
  • That means that different audiences may assign different value to the same information.
  • So what is monitoring
    Monitoring refers to collecting data during the life of a project. This data is subsequently used to make a value judgement, or evaluation of the project’s worth.
  • Evaluation is also about learning….
    What works and what doesn’t!
  • …. And accountability
    Could the funds have been better spent?
  • Wading through evaluation jargon……
  • Efficiency
    Relates to how economically activities were undertaken
    The extent to which a project meets its intended outputs
  • Activities
    The tasks that are required to be done in order to achieve the outputs (eg. run a workshop, conduct and audit)
    Products or services delivered as part of the project’s activities (eg. workshops, audits, brochures)
  • Outcomes
    Measures the change in behaviour or resource use in relation to goal of the project. Outcomes are usually considered in terms of their expected timeframe:
    Short–term (or immediate)
  • Impact
    Refers to the measures of change that result from the outputs being completed, such as responses to surveys, requests for further information, or number of products taken up (eg. lights installed)
    Impact is sometimes used in place of short-term outcomes
  • Evaluation can happen at any time
    Evaluation is not just something that happens at the end of a project
    That would be SUMMATIVE evaluation
    That would be FORMATIVE evaluation
    It can also happen before it starts, and during the project’s life
  • Participatory Evaluation
    Refers to getting all project stakeholders, particularly the target group, involved in a project evaluation
    For more information, a ‘SHORT GUIDE TO MONITORING AND EVALUATION’ can be downloaded from the toolbox.
