An Evaluation Framework for Sustaining the Impact of Educational Development
Hashimoto, Kazuaki; Pillay, Hitendra; Hudson, Peter
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v36 n3 p101-110 Sep 2010
Notwithstanding significant efforts by international aid agencies, aid ineffectiveness became apparent in 1990s as the impact of continued development intervention did not endure the expected outcomes. Conventional monitoring and evaluation by those agencies is critiqued for focusing on measuring project outcomes and giving little attention to aspects of sustainability. As a result, devising a rigorous evaluation framework for educational development has been sought in light of recent paradigm shifts in international development. This paper reports on a case study of an Egyptian educational development project highlighting the importance of transforming the evaluation procedures to process evaluation so as to enhance project impact and longevity. This requires building evaluation capacity of the aid recipient country. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
