Building Evaluation Capacity Guide 1: Designing a Cross-Project Evaluation


"Designing a Cross-Project Evaluation is the first of a two-guide set for evaluators and others interested in evaluation grew out of a National Science Foundation funded effort to improve cross project evaluations. It focuses on evaluation design, including identification and operationalization of
program goals, building of logic models, and indicator setting. This guide also covers the
selection of indicators to be measured and appropriate measures for these indicators. It
begins with the identification of program goals. Subsequent sections discuss the con-
struction of logic models and the evaluation approach, including the generation of eval-
uation questions, the setting of indicators, and the integration of evaluation questions
and indicators. It concludes with a discussion of measurement strategies: the selection of
appropriate measures for different indicators and the role of demographic variables."
