  3. Determine What 'Success' Looks Like


    Evaluation is essentially about values, asking questions such as : What is good, better, best?  Have things improved or got worse? How can they be improved? Therefore, it is important for evaluations to be systematic and transparent in the values that are used to decide criteria and standards.

  4. Framework Matrices

    Evaluation Option

    A framework matrix is a way of summarizing and analyzing qualitative data in a table of rows and columns. It allows for both cross-case as well as sorting data by theme. Typically, individual cases are sorted by row, while themes to which the data have been coded occupy the columns of the matrix. In each intersecting cell, the source information is summarized that relates to the intersecting case and theme.

    A pie chart is a divided circle, in which each slice of the pie represents a part of the whole. The categories that each slice represents are mutually exclusive and exhaustive. Data with negative values cannot be displayed as a pie chart.

  7. Word Cloud

    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. 

  8. Triangulation

    Confirming, Reinforcing, Rejecting
    Evaluation Option

    Triangulation facilitates validation of data through cross verification from more than two sources. It tests the consistency of findings obtained through different instruments and increases the chance to control, or at least assess, some of the threats or multiple causes influencing our results.

  10. Stacked Graph

    Area graph, Stacked bar graph, Stacked column graph
    Evaluation Option

    This type of visualisation depicts items stacked one on top (column) of the other or side-by-side (bar), differentiated by coloured bars or strips. A stacked graph is useful for looking at changes in, for example, expenditures added up over time, across several products or services. The graph integrates different data sets to create a richer picture of (the sum of) changes.
