  1. Developing Outcomes Models: DoView and the Shower Curtain


    This short article shows the development of a logic model using two techniques at the same time - a plastic shower curtain and DoView software.

  2. Enhancing Program Performance with Logic Models


    Developed by the University of Wisconsin Extension service, this resource provides an introduction to developing and using a particular version of the results chain.

  3. What is specific about evaluating research?


    The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Canada primarily funds and facilitates global South-based research for development (R4D).  Its mandate is: “To initiate, encourage, support, and conduct research into the problems of the developing regions of the world and into the means for applying and adapting scientific, technical, and other knowledge to the economic and social advancement of those regions.

  4. AES Workshop: Performance Story Reports

    23rd March, 2017

    Performance story reports aim to strike a good balance between depth of information and brevity. They aim to be written in accessible language and help build a credible case about the contribution a program has made towards outcomes or targets. They help teams and organisations to focus on results and also provide a common language for discussing different programs. This workshop will explore different approaches to performance story, and how performance story reports are developed. It will outline steps to building a report and explore the role of program logic and evidence in developing the report. It will be an interactive and engaging workshop involving case studies and group process.

  5. Measuring Capacity


    What is the measure of capacity? This paper on Measuring Capacity attempts to help development practitioners unbundle this question. First, by defining the starting point: an institution’s ability to perform, sustain performance over time, and manage change and shocks; second, by offering programmatic responses that can drive improvement in these areas; and third, by presenting a framework for capturing the resulting change.

  6. Reconstruction of Program Logic Models as an Essential Component of Program Evaluation


    This presentation, given by Alexey Kuzmin at the AEA 2012 conference, outlines common problems with program logic models and provides suggestions on how to fix them during the evaluation. Kuzmin argues that reconstruction of program logic is an integral part of most evaluations and should also be included in evaluator competencies.

  8. Week 16: Infographics to make your evaluation results go viral

    17th April, 2014

    Continuing our season of blogs on presenting evaluation findings in ways that will get them read (and hopefully used), Joitske Hulsebosch, an independent consultant, contributes her ideas on how to present your findings in the form of an infographic. Catch up on recent contributions from Rakesh Mohan and Patricia Rogers on sharing evaluation findings.

  10. Outcome Harvesting for Complex Development Programs

    18th June, 2018 to 20th June, 2018

    Outcome Harvesting is a utilisation-focused, highly participatory evaluation tool that enables evaluators, grantmakers, and managers to identify, formulate, verify, and make sense of outcomes they have influenced when at the time of planning the relationships of cause-effect were substantially unknown.
