Effective evaluations

Evaluation measures for CTLCs allow leaders to improve services and seek funding. It is quite important, therefore, thatleaders take these measures seriously.

It is not enough to count the number of participants in a workshop or a class offered for a discount rate. It is the learning that needsto be measured. So, evaluation measures need to be BOTH qualitative (anecdotes, impressions) and quantitative (hard numbers). The twoconstitute a credible evaluation process.

There are several evaluation measurement rubrics available. They need to work closely with your context, your community,your culture.

Suggested Reading:

Teachers Without Borders' research team strongly suggests that NGOs or other civil society groups adapt a suitableevaluation design to their existing needs and to take seriously the elements of such a design in their own training materials. We recommendhighly the frameworks established by ALNAP - The Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action ALNAP is aninternational, inter-agency forum working to improve learning, accountability, and quality across the humanitarian sector.
