This checklist by Kelly N. Robertson and Lori Wingate provides suggestions for the content and organization of long-form evaluation reports that are concise, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-navigate. The checklist is not a rigid set of requirements, but rather a compilation of suggestions based on evaluation literature, the authors’ experience, and input from experts. It will be useful for those who are new to writing evaluation reports, but also as a refresher to those who are more experienced in the genre.

It is a useful approach to document stories of impact and to develop an understanding of the factors that enhance or impede impact.

The few tools they have, in the dry formats for reporting to donors, are usually too simplistic and dry.
