Speaker(s): Barbara Befani

Choosing the right evaluation tools is crucial for producing useful, credible and rigorous evidence in evaluations. There is growing range of evaluation methods for answering different evaluation questions, from randomised controlled trials to outcome mapping to process tracing. But selecting the right method or combination of methods for an evaluation can be difficult. 

Which method is appropriate depends on what questions you want to answer, what additional goals and interests you have, and whether various attributes of your intervention and evaluation process make it feasible to use different methods.

During this seminar, Barbara Befani will introduce The Choosing Appropriate Evaluation Methods tool which she has developed with Michael O’Donnell from Bond, and input from experts in 11 different evaluation methods. The tool is designed to help understand evaluation methods and select appropriate approaches for a range of evaluation contexts, questions and interventions.
