Participants will understand how to apply program logic, how to set standards for evaluations to then assess the quality of evaluation reports. This program will be valuable for people in policy, program and service delivery roles who plan and conduct evaluations, assess the quality of evaluation reports, and manage others who conduct evaluation studies.
