  1. Module 2 – Monitoring and Evaluation Definitions

  2. Overview • Monitoring and evaluation are tools that make it possible to identify and measure the results of projects, programs or policies

  3. Why the Concern? • To evaluate and adjust strategies and activities • To report on progress to interested parties, clients, taxpayers and the general public • To identify and share with others best practices and lessons learned • To improve the programming of new interventions and strategies

  4. Monitoring • Provides regular information on how things are working

  5. Monitoring: Definition • A continuous data collection and analysis process is implemented to assess a project ( a program or a policy) and compare it with the expected performance

  6. Evaluation • Evaluation can only be done after a certain time and requires more thorough investigations

  7. Evaluation: Definition • A systematic and objective measurement of the results achieved by a project, a program or a policy, in order to assess its relevance, its coherence, the efficiency of its implementation, its effectiveness and its impact, as well as the sustainability

  8. Monitoring and Evaluation • Monitoring assesses progress in implementation of ongoing programs • Evaluation provides a snapshot against some benchmarks at a point in time of programs that may or may not be continuing

  9. Monitoring and Evaluation - Rationale • Monitoring • Holds implementers accountable for delivery of inputs • Provides basis for corrective action • Provides assessment of continued relevance • Evaluation • Accountability - was money well spent? • Learning - what could we do better next time?

  10. Monitoring and Evaluation - Focus • Monitoring • Was delivery according to plan? • What were the deviations? • Were they justifiable?Evaluation • Relevance • Appropriateness • Success • Cost effectiveness • Lessons learned • Effectiveness • Impact • Sustainability • Efficiency

  11. Monitoring and Evaluation - Timing • Monitoring • Ongoing or periodic throughout the life of the program • Evaluation • Typically at mid-point in a funding cycle, a year before the end • Impact evaluation - 3 to 5 years afterwards • Delay depends on the nature of the project

  12. Focus of the Module • The design and implementation of a monitoring system will not be addressed here • There are many documents that you can review on this topic outside this workshop. Specific training is also available.

  16. What is my organization doing in this movement ? General issue of project, program and policy evaluation What is the world dynamics ? Who leads this movement ? What is this organization’s (this client) evaluation culture? Its evaluation practices? Evaluation within the organization Are there national specificities ? Individualpractice Where is research at ? What definitions, vocabulary, practices? How can I enrich my experience ? What should I know how to do ? What do I know how to do ? Evaluation can be Approached at Three Levels
