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.
The Qualitative Impact Assessment Protocol (QuIP) is an impact evaluation approach that draws on Contribution Analysis. QuIP studies serve to provide an independent reality check of a predetermined theory of change which helps stakeholders to assess, learn from, and demonstrate the social impact of their work. QuIP’s approach places project beneficiaries’ voices at the centre of the evaluation, enabling them to share and feedback their experiences in an open, credible, and respectful way.
