    There is an increasing demands from funding agencies and implementing partners alike to conduct evaluation missions to assess projects’ performance as well as to capture and report on project’s outcomes. Valid assessment of the outcomes or impact of a social program is among the most challenging evaluation tasks, but also one of the most important.

    Evaluation is first and foremost a reality test, a learning mechanism that provides feedback on the results of action in relation to prior objectives, plans, expectations or standards of performance. Evaluation missions and reports help Development Aid Partners to assess the quality of their development projects, ensure that results are achieved, and to promote learning.

    The course provides an overview of how to run and manage evaluation mission more effectively by walking participants through the evaluation process step-by-step starting from the preparation and issuance of the evaluation terms of reference till the submission of evaluation reports and sharing of lessons learned. The course will also cover the application of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) evaluation criteria of relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability. The course will also place special attention to issues related to the measurement of outcomes

    Learning Outcomes

    • Participants will learn the various types of evaluation and their uses
    • Understand the terms and application of the OECD/DAC evaluation criteria
    • Increased understanding around the monitoring and evaluation of outcomes and impact
    • Increased knowledge on how to design and manage an effective evaluation process, how to close the learning loop and ensure results are used for improvement

    Additional Information

    • This training course of instruction and practice is delivered over 2-days (12 hours).
    • It is an Intermediate - Advanced level course, it is advised to take the Foundation Level course beforehand if you're not an experienced M&E Officer

    A commitment to performance measurement has become essential requirement and mandate of donor-funded projects, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, public and government agencies in response to increased demands to results-based management, value-for-money, do-more-for-less, effective and tangible delivery of project’s outcomes. In order to stand-out of the competition, organizations need not only to build results-oriented culture but to strive towards greater outcome-level changes targeting the improved welfare for beneficiaries.

    Demonstrating results achieved is an accountability requirement not only to the funding agencies or to the implementing partners but also to project’s beneficiaries, national and governmental stakeholders as well. It all starts by properly designing development projects through clearly and logically outlaying potential multiple-layers of developmental outcomes. Developing a Monitoring and Evaluation plan is an essential management and progress-reporting document. M&E plans captures developmental indicators which are later used to effectively apply for additional funding and / or to successfully communicate and market projects achievements.

    The training will cover the basics of performance measurement and looks at frameworks to explain how a program is understood to contribute to its intended or observed outcomes. It will also cover the definition of performance indicators, data collection tools and data sources. The course will provide ways into the analysis and reporting of performance information and how to use it in progress reporting and engaging stakeholders. The course will end up with an open discussion of the challenges and common problems that are faced by Monitoring and Evaluation Officers.
