  1. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 45: Participatory Video for M&E- unpacking how change happened

    7th November, 2013

    It is time for another blog series on BetterEvaluation, and this time we will be exploring the uses of video in evaluation. Video is a powerful tool which can be used in many different ways and BetterEvaluation has only scratched the surface so far. Three experts will present three different uses of video in evaluation.

  2. Rubrics

    Global Assessment Scale, competency framework
    Evaluation Option
    Example rubric

    A rubric is a framework that sets out criteria and standards for different levels of performance and describes what performance would look like at each level.  Rubrics have often been used in education for grading student work, and in recent years have been applied in evaluation to make transparent the process of synthesising evidence into an overall evaluative judgement.

  3. Equal Access Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation toolkit


    This toolkit aims to help communication for development (C4D) organisations to demonstrate the impacts and outcomes of their initiatives, listen to their listeners, continuously learn, and feed this learning back into the organisation and its practices. It is a key outcome of the Assessing Communication for Social Change (AC4SC) project, which was a successful collaboration between Equal Access Nepal, Equal Access International, Queensland University of Technology and the University of Adelaide, Australia. 

  4. Line Graph

    Line Chart
    Evaluation Option

    A line graph is commonly used to display change over time as a series of data points connected by straight line segments on two axes. The line graph therefore helps to determine the relationship between two sets of values, with one data set always being dependent on the other set.

    3rd October, 2013

    When reviewing evidence for decision-making, the first challenge is deciding how to choose which types of evidence to include. In this blog, Jessica Hagen-Zanker from the Overseas Development Institute introduces a new approach to literature reviews which combine the rigour of full systematic reviews, without their disadvantages of resource intensiveness and inflexibility.

  8. Graphic recording

    Graphic facilitation
    Evaluation Option

    Graphic recording is the translation of conversations into images and text on large sheets of paper during meetings and events. An evaluator might choose graphic recording to capture collective stories and visually represent conversations throughout an evaluation process. This could include discussions with stakeholders during a number of stages and processes, such as conducting a needs analysis or developing a theory of change, workshops to discuss interim evaluation findings and stakeholder feedback, and presentations of final evaluation findings telling the story of the journey of the program and the principles that guide it.

    This month we're celebrating our 5th birthday!

  10. Seasonal Calendars

    Evaluation Option

    Seasonal calendars are useful for evaluation as they can help analyse time-related cyclical changes in data. A calendar allows people to visualise patterns of variations over particular periods of time - such as across weeks, seasons, one or several years.
