    There is increasing emphasis placed by impact evaluation commissioners on assessing the contribution made by projects and programmes to changing people’s lives, commonly referred to as a ‘contribution claim’. It can be argued that current theory-based approaches fail to provide evaluators with guidance on the ‘right’ data to gather and the quality of that data in relation to a particular contribution claim. This course aims to guide evaluators to collect data which can help assess how strongly or weakly such data support contribution claims.
