This freely available, online book brings together case studies using an impact evaluation approach, the Qualitative Impact Protocol (QUIP), without a control group that uses narrative causal statements elicited directly from intended project beneficiaries. The QuIP has now been used in many countries, and this book uses case studies from seven countries (Ethiopia, India, Malawi, Mexico, Tanzania, Uganda and UK) assessing a range of activities, including food security, rural livelihoods, factory working conditions, medical training, community empowerment and microcredit for house improvement. It includes comprehensive ‘how to’ QuIP guidelines and practical insights based on these case studies into how to address the numerous methodological challenges thrown up by impact evaluation.
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.
