Evaluating an activity helps to confirm whether you're making a difference, and uncovers things that could be changed or improved.
Before you evaluate
Rigorous evaluations can tell us if what we're doing is making a difference. Sharing your evaluation means your learnings can improve other activities, too.
Plan an evaluation
There are different types of evaluation depending on who you want to be involved and what questions you're trying to answer.
Use our tools to identify which activity elements to monitor and the specific questions you need to answer.
Collect evaluation data using surveys, focus groups, interviews or observations. Use existing validated scales or use the template to create your own.
Once you have gathered your data, decide how you'll present it. Evaluations should be shared so others can replicate what worked and avoid what didn't.
