    Event
    Webinar
    16th February, 2015 to 25th February, 2015
    Online
    Paid

    Presented by Scott Chaplowe, this eStudy introduces six key planning steps for a successful monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system: 1) Identify the purpose and scope of the M&E system; 2) Plan for data collection and management; 3) Plan for data analysis; 4) Plan for information reporting and utilization; 5) Plan for M&E human resources and capacity building; 6) Prepare the M&E budget.  This 6-step approach has been designed to guide programming at the community, regional and national levels. While informed by international programs/projects, it is also very appropriate for domestic (US) programs and projects – wherever M&E is needed for reliable and useful information and reporting to inform for program management and uphold performance accountability.

  3. Word Cloud

    Synonyms: 
    tag cloud

    Word clouds or tag clouds are graphical representations of word frequency that give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in a source text. The larger the word in the visual the more common the word was in the document(s). This type of visualization can assist evaluators with exploratory textual analysis by identifying words that frequently appear in a set of interviews, documents, or other text. It can also be used for communicating the most salient points or themes in the reporting stage.
