This manual presents the very basics of monitoring, evaluation, and evaluative research as applied to population education. It is designed for beginners and is useful to project staff charged with the responsibility of monitoring, evaluation, and research. Chapter 1 discusses monitoring and evaluation. Chapter 2 examines evaluative research designs and chapter 3 presents examples of evaluative research designs for both formal and non-formal population education, including experimental and quasi-experimental designs. Chapter 4 discusses data analysis techniques including measures of central tendency, variation, relationship, comparison of two groups, comparing related or matched samples, the sign test, t-test for matched samples, t-test for independent groups, Spearman's rank correlation, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and the chi square test. Chapter 5 reviews guidelines for writing an evaluative research report. Chapter 6 examines cost-effectiveness of population education activities. (RSL)
