Prioritize and Eliminate Questions

This worksheet from Chapter 5 of the National Science Foundation's User-Friendly Handbook for Mixed Method Evaluations provides a template which allows the organisation and selection of possible evaluation questions.

It outlines the criteria that can be used when deciding on the questions:

  • Who wants to know?
  • Will the information be new or confirmatory?
  • How important is the information to various stakeholders?
  • Are there sufficient resources to collect and analyze the information needed to answer the questions?
  • Can the question be addressed in the time available for the evaluation?
