Here is an excellent presentation on network analysis and evaluation originally presented at the America Evaluation Conference 2014:
I’m currently in Uganda where I’ve been conducting a workshop on “communicating evaluation findings effectively” as part of the GIZ project on Evaluation Capacity Development in Uganda.
I also made a presentation for the Uganda Evaluation Association as part of their Kampala Evaluation Talk series, focusing on “Four challenges and opportunities to communicating evaluation finding” which can be seen below.
Thanks to the participants of both the workshop and the talk for their enthusiasm and interest!
Recently I was running a series of focus groups and wanted to update myself on the “ways” and “hows” – I found the following three guides useful:
This week, 15-19 September, 2014, a new week-long campaign has been launched to highlight the importance of measurement in communications by AMEC, the communication evaluation industry association.
Here are some great new resources on network evaluation:
- the State of Network Evaluation (pdf) discusses current thinking on network evaluation frameworks, approaches, and tools.
- the Case Book (pdf) profiles nine network evaluations including key questions, methodologies, and results.
For those interested in presenting evaluation data effectively, here is a recent post from Nick Herft on the BetterEvaluation blog with some very useful tips and guidance.
I’ve written previously about the challenge of evaluating communication products – websites, brochures, videos and reports – rather than a communication campaign or programme as a whole.
I’ve just been involved in carrying out an evaluation of products for ACAPS, an NGO focused on assessment in humanitarian crises – and as part of their mandate they produce analytical products (mainly reports) on crisis situations globally. To carry out the evaluation, we undertook 40 interviews with users of their products and then analysed and categorised the type of use, satisfaction ratings and unmet needs.
