Eval11 Session 555: Living into Developmental Evaluation: Reflections on Changing Practice

Knight Foundation on a developmental evaluation of its Community Information Challenge project – a 5-year, $24m innovative initiative designed to foster local information news and civic engagement through digital media. In this session, we described how the evaluation’s questions, design and data collection methods, and reporting strategies have evolved over time – how the evaluation has been responsive to emerging client interests and information needs, in ways that reflect a strategic learning and developmental evaluation approach

Evaluating Social Innovation

Evaluating Social Innovation, a new report developed by FSG and the Center for Evaluation Innovation, challenges grantmakers to explore how common evaluation approaches and practices constrain innovation, and examines a new approach to evaluating social innovation known as "developmental evaluation." Developmental evaluation can inform and support innovation and adaptation by asking evaluative questions, applying evaluation logic, and gathering and reporting data and findings in accessible and timely ways. The report suggests when to use developmental evaluation, describes conditions for successfully implementing this approach, and offers insights from funders and evaluators who have tested developmental evaluation

Eval12 Session 773: Developmental Evaluation in Practice: Lessons and Tips from an Evaluation of the Convergence Partnership

Developmental evaluation offers new ways to think about and approach evaluation to support and accommodate emergent, innovative and transformative processes that often define social change initiatives. Yet, many evaluators are unfamiliar with how to apply developmental evaluation approaches in real-world settings. This session will illustrate in practical terms how developmental evaluation was applied to the Convergence Partnership, an innovative group of national funders working to improve the places where people live so that everyone can be healthy. Evaluators attending this session will learn how developmental evaluation was applied to planning, data collection, analysis, reporting, and use of findings
