Happy Holidays! In celebration of a great year, we've collected a list of favourite resources of 2016 that are freely available online so that we could share them with you as a bit of an end of year gift. The resources aren't necessarily new - but they are things that have been discovered for the first time or rediscovered in 2016. We have a wide range of cool tools, guides, examples and other resources that help us do evaluation better and think about it differently.

This week over 3,000 people from all over the world are expected to meet in Atlanta, Georgia for the 2016 conference of the American Evaluation Association. The theme this year, Evaluation + Design, explores integration of design and evaluation in three areas:
- Program design,
- Evaluation design,
- Information design
In this edition of the BE FAQ blog, we address a question that comes up quite often: How do you go about analysing data that has been collected from respondents via a questionnaire?
Big data is emerging as a new world currency. This form of digital data, generated almost automatically by the online interactions of people and products and services, creates a wealth of constantly updating information that can be used to support decision-making and aid monitoring and evaluation.
EvalYear is well underway around the world. Here are some of the ways South Africa will be marking EvalYear. Thanks to Liezille Jacobs from SAMEA (South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association) for this information.
