  2. Horizontal Evaluation

    Synonyms: 
    Horizontal Learning
    Approach

    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.

  3. Participatory Evaluation

    Approach

    Participatory evaluation is an approach that involves the stakeholders of a programme or policy in the evaluation process. This involvement can occur at any stage of the evaluation process, from the evaluation design to the data collection and analysis and the reporting of the study. A participatory approach can be taken with any impact evaluation design, and with quantitative and qualitative data. However, the type and level of stakeholder involvement will necessarily vary between different types, for example between a local level impact evaluation and an evaluation of policy changes (Gujit 2014, p.1). It is important to consider the purpose of involving stakeholders, and which stakeholders should be involved how, in order to maximise the effectiveness of the approach.
