Eval12 Poster 52: Capacity Building Spillover: Uptake and Innovative Use of Systems Evaluation Protocol Tools and Skills 

11-21-2012 15:17

The Cornell Office for Research on Evaluation (CORE) has developed a protocol for evaluation planning known as the “Systems Evaluation Protocol” (SEP). Since 2006, CORE has trained 200 individuals from 48 organizations in this approach to program modeling and evaluation planning. As part of the training, participants use an on-line tool called the “Netway” for completing certain steps of the Protocol. The research presented here analyses data from Netway logs and selected participant interviews to explore patterns of use of the SEP evaluation steps and the Netway tool outside of participants’ training process. We refer to this further use as “spillover” from the training and capacity-building effort. We are particularly interested in learning about the purposes that motivated spillover use of the Netway system and about which parts of the Protocol and which components of the Netway have been most useful. Results of this pilot study point to durable uptake of several components of the SEP evaluation steps and to innovative adaptation of SEP tools, particularly the visual modeling process.
