The focus will be on large-scale public-sector programs and the new methods used in their evaluation.
It will introduce participants to a range of evaluation methods, designs and measurement techniques, including both qualitative and quantitative methods useful for process, outcome and impact evaluations. It will also provide an introduction to the many frameworks that can be used to evaluate programs and policies. It will outline practical steps from program planning, through to developing and assessing evidence of effectiveness, and finally outline the process of scaling up interventions to reach a wider audience.
The workshop will be valuable for policy makers and program managers/implementers with limited evaluation expertise who want to get a general understanding about contemporary approaches to program evaluation.
