NSW Government evaluation toolkit

This web-based toolkit has been developed to help program managers in New South Wales (Australia) government agencies manage evaluations (including those undertaken by internal or external evaluators, or by a combination of both). 

The toolkit has been developed by the BetterEvaluation team (working in conjunction with ARTD Consultants, Sydney) to provide a simple front-end for program managers that links to the wider range of resources on the BetterEvaluation site.

It provides seven colour coded key steps and subsequent sub-steps for planning and implementing a program evaluation project. 


The Seven Steps of an Evaluation Project

  1. Develop program logic and review needs
  2. Develop the evaluation brief
  3. Commission the evaluation project
  4. Manage the development of the evaluation design
  5. Manage the development of the evaluation work plan
  6. Manage the implementation of the work plan, including the production of the report(s)
  7. Disseminate report and support use of the evaluation
