Good practice evaluation and research technical note

Summary of publication

In late 2017, evaluation and academic research conducted during the life of the Pacific Sports Partnerships program was reviewed. The review considered quality, usefulness and outcomes of the evaluation and academic research reports. It recommended developing a 'good practice in evaluation technical note'.

This technical note draws on a range of source material and practical experience. It aligns with DFAT's own Monitoring and Evaluation Standards, seeks not to replace them but to complement them for practitioners in sport for development and other development sectors. It is designed for use by sport for development program designers and managers who are commissioning evaluation and/or academic research and sport for development evaluation and academic researchers who are responding to requests for evaluative research, developing evaluation/research plans and implementing evaluative research.
