Evaluation Capacity Tools

Evaluation is about systematically and rigorously assessing the value (merit, worth and importance) of something of interest (e.g. an organisation, programme or project).

Funders, programme designers and deliverers can use the toolkit on this page to build their capacity for evaluation.

This toolkit is user-friendly and comes with a step-by-step guide (in four parts).   Parts 2-4 are interactive so you can fill them in online and print them off.
