  1. Manager's guide to evaluation

    Commissioners Guide Landing

    This is an interactive guide for people who are managing an evaluation.

    The guide can be used for managing an evaluation that is conducted by an external evaluator or evaluation team, an internal team, or by a combination of these. It can be used for different types of evaluations and for evaluations of different types of interventions, including projects, programs, policies and clusters of projects. It can also be used for evaluation of research.

    The guide aims to support decision making throughout the process of an evaluation, from planning its purpose and scope, designing it, conducting it, reporting findings and supporting use of its findings. In many organizations, this process will draw on the expertise of several individuals. Additional help may need to be obtained for one or more steps in the process.

    The information is organized in 9 steps. In some cases, the order in which the steps are addressed in the evaluation process might be slightly different, or earlier steps might need to be revisited in response to changing circumstances and needs.


    You can navigate through the steps-based information using the 'steps menu' on the right-hand side of every page. You can click on links for further information which are provided within specific pages or you can go back to a previous page using the 'breadcrumbs' at the top of each page.

    Below is quick overview of each of the steps with links to sub-steps, where relevant:
