Evaluation Resources

BetterEvaluation is an international collaboration to improve the practice and theory of evaluation by creating and curating information on choosing and using evaluation methods and processes, including managing evaluations and strengthening evaluation capacity.

They support people to apply new knowledge to their particular situations, and to share their experiences and further contribute to learning how to do an evaluation better.

The BetterEvaluation website is the primary platform for this work. 

BetterEvaluation supports three connected areas of activity: evaluation practice, evaluation capacity strengthening and research and development in evaluation.

DE originators liken their approach to the role of research & development in the private sector product development process because it facilitates real-time, or close to real-time, feedback to program staff thus facilitating a continuous development loop.
