Proportionate evaluation

About this event

This interactive workshop is for charities who want to evaluate their work and measure their impact, but have limited resources. How do you decide what to evaluate and measure? What constitutes a proportionate and meaningful way to evaluate in your project or service?

During the workshop we will discuss why charities want to understand their impact, why we need measurement, the different types of evidence standards, and how you can decide what type of measurement is proportionate and meaningful for your charity. We will look at how a theory of change can help you decide on measurement priorities, and the five types of data you could collect.

With a maximum of 12 delegates the workshop will be interactive, and there will be plenty of space and opportunity to ask your questions. The workshop will ask:

  • Why should we evaluate?
  • Why do we want to understand our impact?
  • Why do we need measurement?
  • Different types of evidence standards
  • Proportionate evaluation approach
  • Using a theory of change
  • Which evidence to collect?
