Evaluation is an organized way to collect, analyze, and use information about projects, policies and programs. This gives information on the effectiveness and efficiency of the work completed.

This toolkit is starts with an introduction to research approaches, tools, and methods. It covers techniques of evaluation practices, such as quantitative and qualitative research and ethics. Best practices for external and internal evaluation are laid out according to: evaluation need, the purpose of the tool, when to use it, workshop template, what’s next, and resources.

The approach of this toolkit is to enhance community development and empower citizen-driven change. The evaluation process and outcomes can benefit the program, the funder, the community, and partners.

It is a large document which can be used in sections that suit your needs. All tools throughout and in the appendices are offered as templates to be adapted, re-created and re-worked to your specific context.
