Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for Results is for managers and monitoring and evaluation officers who need to supervise, manage, plan and implement M&E in their projects and programmes. The course addresses M&E for the entire results chain, including the all-important outcomes. This 10-day course covers the principles, and embeds the practice of M&E for results.

"Results chain or pipeline logic models represent a program theory as a linear process with inputs and activities at the front and long-term outcomes at the end. Various models have been developed for different purposes each with relative advantages and disadvantages." Funnell, S. and Rogers, P. (2011) p 387
This tool, developed by NGO-IDEAS, was designed to help communities analyse the chain of effects from activities to outputs. The tool can be used early in the process of developing a logic model based on existing data, or done later based on using tools like this.

Two weeks ago I posted a poll asking BetterEvaluation users to select 1-4 topics they consider most important for the Start Here landing page. On behalf of the BetterEvaluation team, I would like to thank everyone for providing their feedback. The information we have received is very useful and we will be mindful of this while reworking the Start Here section.
The results of the poll are presented in the graph below.

How many methods do you usually see in evaluation reports as having been used to collect data? Chances are you’ll see project document review, key information interviews, surveys of some kind, and perhaps group interviews with intended beneficiaries. These methods are all useful to help describe what has happened, the outcomes and the context in which change occurred.

In our recent blog post about using theories of change and logic models better in evaluation, we asked BetterEvaluation members to submit a question or challenge that they have in relation to creating or using theory of change for review by the BetterEvaluation team. One member asked us for advice on using a theory of change for systems change which we are very happy to share below:
This article by Nicolas Legewie provides an introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). It discusses the method's main principles and advantages including its concepts. It then goes on to discuss using the main analytical tools and how to analyse their output. Finally, the article demonstrates how to use QCA results to inform data analysis.
