An effective small project evaluation requires a clear-cut and feasible project plan, an evaluation plan that matches the project’s scope and purpose, and a project team and external evaluator who are willing and able to share responsibility for implementing the evaluation. In this webinar, we will review foundational principles of small project evaluation and discuss strategies for putting them into practice for a high-quality, economical, and useful evaluation of a small project.

Webinar participants will be able to

  1. Create or refine a project logic model that accurately represents a project’s activities and intended outcomes as a foundation for an evaluation plan.
  2. Develop evaluation questions that are appropriate for a small project.
  3. Identify project process and outcome indicators for answering the evaluation questions.
