Valuing Evaluation: A Practical Approach to Designing an Evaluation That Works for You. Working Papers in Early Childhood Development 26.
This paper synthesizes a 1-day workshop held in Israel in May 1997 on behalf of the National Council for the Child with the support of the Bernard van Leer Foundation and attended by representatives of projects and organizations involved in promoting early childhood development. The goal of the workshop was to help participants design and carry out an evaluation of their own project without having recourse to an outside expert. Topics covered in the report include: (1) identifying barriers to evaluation; (2) definitions of evaluation; (3) reasons for evaluation; (4) identifying the aims of evaluation; (5) focusing the evaluation; (6) ways of finding information; (7) generating indicators; and (8) implementing an evaluation.
