Synthesis of Evaluation Capacity Building Literature 

11-30-2009 15:44

Evaluation capacity building (ECB) is a growing area reflecting an ever increasing expectation of evidence that programs are achieving their goals. ECB is also reflective of the shift towards participatory evaluation methods. A logic model is used to integrate existing theory and frameworks. The broad-based synthesis method used derives from the evaluation syntheses developed at the Government Accountability Office and includes qualitative and quantitative data from the empirical ECB literature. Findings from the detailed coding of 80 ECB empirical studies are presented. The research questions focus on ECB strategies, evaluations, and outcomes, and include some contextual and implementation variables. Reporting will also include challenges encountered and lessons learned.
