In this intermediate-level session, the presenters will discuss some of the common challenges associated with evaluation and performance measurement frameworks, and strategies to avoid them. The first hour will focus on how to develop meaningful logic models and evaluation questions. Key assumptions for evaluation budget development purposes will also be provided. During the second hour, challenges and best practices associated with performance measurement frameworks will be presented, including the development of realistic indicators and data collection tools, and how to pilot these tools. There are no specific prerequisites to attend this session, but it is best suited for participants with some experience in evaluation.
