Assessing the Quality of Education Evaluations Tool
The evaluation quality assessment tool developed as part of the quality review process is based on internationally recognized best practices in evaluation, USAID policies, and standards in the evaluation practice in the US. The tool is structured around seven aspects of quality that can be applied to any evaluation, regardless of type. Not all items in the assessment tool will be applicable to all evaluations; they should be used as relevant and appropriate, depending on the evaluation parameters. Stakeholders might want to use the framework and tool differently; for example, it might be used by:
- USAID Missions when procuring and managing evaluations;
- Partners when planning and implementing evaluations;
- The sector at large when learning about evaluation practice and curating the evidence generated through evaluations.
