A tailored response
The evaluation framework is a tailored response to the needs of Community Development Officers (CDOs) - a guide to evaluation basics that can be effectively used within a range of settings.
This resource is a step towards creating a more systemic approach to evaluation across the state-wide network of CDOs, enabling CDOs and Managers to developed a shared language and understanding about what is possible when evaluating their work.
A resource of two elements - a framework and a toolkit
This resource consists of two parts - an evaluation framework providing:
- An overview of key things to consider when planning and managing an evaluation
- A foundational approach to undertaking evaluations for community development purposes in local government settings
- A discussion of main approaches to evaluation and methods that might be most suitable to a real-world local government context.
And, an evaluation toolkit providing:
- Guidance on implementing the evaluation cycle and using different evaluation tools
- Templates and resources
