There are a variety of evaluation methodologies that are traditionally used in USAID programming, described in Learning Lab link below. Evaluation methodologies should be chosen based on the kind of impact that needs to capture, and should be designed from the start of the activities, as there are often significant budget, time, or data requirements. When these parameters are not feasible or possible for the activity, other innovative methods can be used to capture the development outcomes of the activity.
Innovative evaluations of different types--performance, developmental, impact.
