Eval10 Session 521: Research Synthesis of Evaluation Capacity Building Literature  

11-22-2010 21:24

The pressure for evidence-based practice continues to burgeon and create expectations for organizations to engage in evaluation. This leads to a greater demand for evaluation capacity building (ECB) and for evaluating ECB. This study uses research synthesis, a core methodology used for current evidence-based reviews, to systematically code and assess the empirical ECB literature. Existing ECB theory and frameworks provide the conceptual basis and a logic model integrates the concepts and provides the causal structure for study questions. Eighty empirical examples of ECB in the literature were reviewed and coded in an effort to systematically describe ECB strategies, how these strategies were evaluated, what outcomes were reported, and how contextual and implementation factors may have affected these strategies or their outcomes.
