This three-day workshop aims to take a deep dive into the practice of developmental evaluation, exploring, unpacking and engaging participants in what it means to practice evaluation using principles as guides. Participants will be equipped with the confidence, mind-set and motivation, as well as with new skills and tools to engage in developmental evaluation practice in their own settings.
Horizontal evaluation is an approach that combines self-assessment by local participants and external review by peers. Originally developed to evaluate new methodologies for agricultural research and development, horizontal evaluation has wider potential for application. In its original setting, the focus of horizontal evaluation is the actual R&D methodology itself rather than the project per se or the team or organisation that developed it.
This checklist aims to help users assess whether Developmental Evaluation is a good fit for your situation. The tool is comprised of three checklists that ask you to answer a series of questions in the following areas: Developmental situation, adaptive capacity and readiness for learning and evaluation.
