Broadening the range of methods and designs for impact evaluations provides new opportunities and opens up new possibilities. However, it creates the problem of choosing and combining the most appropriate methods under different circumstances and for different evaluations.

This seminar addresses the logic and criteria behind the process of methodological choice (ability to answer questions, to fit a variety of interests and goals, and feasibility in relation to evaluation and contextual constraints) and presents an excel tool that has been developed by Barbara Befani and Michael O'Donnell to broaden knowledge of a wide range of methods as well as to aid appropriate selection and combination. Benefits of using the tool as well as challenges and potential for improvement will be addressed.
