Find resources by method or process in the Rainbow Framework

The BetterEvaluation Rainbow Framework sorts more than 300 evaluation methods and processes into 7 clusters of tasks: Manage, Define, Frame, Describe, Understand Causes, Synthesise, and Report and Support Use. Each method and process has a number of curated resources linked to it. You can navigate through the Rainbow Framework to learn more about the different evaluation tasks, methods and processes, and find resources this way.

Or, if you are simply looking for resources to do with a specific method or process, you can use this form.
