USAID Evaluation Report Checklist

High quality, evidence-based evaluation reports with a clear focus on decision-making for USAID and other key partners are critical for improving USAID’s development effectiveness. USAID and evaluators need to work collaboratively to ensure high quality evaluations using clear and specific standards. Use the Evaluation Report Checklist to review and strengthen draft evaluation reports. The fifteen (15) items in bold are critical factors that should be addressed in early drafts of the evaluation report. As the report is finalized we recommend that you assess it against all seventy six (76) factors to ensure high technical quality, a strong executive summary, and the targeting of recommendations for decision-making purposes. One of USAID’s main responsibilities with evaluations is to ensure that they are broadly disseminated--and actively communicated--for learning, program improvement and accountability purposes. Make sure to pay attention not only to the technical quality of evaluations but to promoting their use and impact.
