Impact Evaluation Framework and Strategy.
Bardini, Mark D.
This proposal describes a framework and strategy for evaluating the impact of World Bank Institute (WBI) programs. Each section details a relevant aspect of the evaluation strategy and framework, their goals and strategies, and how they relate to the broader goals and mission of the WBI and the World Bank. The evaluation proposal focuses on WBI client learning programs that have been implemented for at least 2 years and whose effects include impacts on individuals, countries, policies, laws, and regulations. The evaluation framework outlines a strategy for measuring outcomes in five areas, and the conceptual model recognizes the multilevel structure and multiple results of WBI programs through the inclusion of inputs, program description and implementation, outputs, outcomes, impacts, and exogenous factors, both direct and indirect. Five of 15 WBI programs were selected for in-depth impact evaluation in fiscal year 2002, and a random sample of abut 10% of their activities will be chosen for impact evaluations. For each of the five programs, this proposal plans the evaluation of activities that are of longer duration, rather than one-time or short offerings. A variety of data sources will be used to answer key research questions, and mixed methods will be used for data analysis. Findings will be disseminated as appropriate to a number of audiences. (SLD)
