Barking up a Better Tree panel: Wed, Oct 26, 2016 (04:30 PM - 06:00 PM) : M104

PhD Despite the increasing focus on impact evaluation, especially in international development, evaluations rarely look at the longer-term impact of evaluations but report on the achievement of shorter-term outcomes. This session makes the case for designing and investing in evaluations that look at whether the intended impacts are achieved and sustained in the long-term and what other impacts (unexpected or adaptive) emerge over time. Sustainability involves durability of outcomes and impacts long after project resources have left. Given the need to emphasize these aspects of these evaluations, we propose a new label for this type – Sustained and Emergent Impact Evaluation (SEIE)

Eval11 Session 605: Evaluating the impact of training programs: Simple surveys are not enough!

This technique is often woefully inadequate, and does not allow the evaluator to fully understand the true impact of the training program on its participants and the systems in which they operate. In this session, a comprehensive evaluation methodology that was developed to assess the effectiveness and long-term impact of two NIMH-funded training curriculum development projects will be presented. Integral to the design of this evaluation is the assessment of short-term and long-term impact at both the individual and systems-level using a multi-modal data collection strategy
