Linda G. Morra Imas, Ray C. Rist, "The Road to Results: Designing and Conducting Effective Development Evaluations"
World Bank Publications 2009 | ISBN-10: 0821378910 | 602 Pages | PDF | 2,3 MB

This comprehensive text presents concepts and procedures for evaluation in a development context. It provides procedures and examples on how to set up a monitoring and evaluation system, how to conduct participatory evaluations and do social mapping, and how to construct a "rigorous" quasi-experimental design to answer an impact question. The book begins with a description of the context of development evaluation and how it arrived where it is today. It then discusses current issues driving development evaluation, such as the Millennium Development Goals and the move from simple project evaluations to the broader understandings of complex evaluations. The topics of implementing "Results-based Measurement and Evaluation" and constructing a "Theory of Change" are emphasized throughout the text. Next, the authors take the reader down "the road to results", presenting procedures for evaluating projects, programs, and policies by using a "Design Matrix" to help map the process. This road includes: determining the overall approach formulating questions selecting designs developing data collection instruments choosing a sampling strategy planning data analysis for qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method evaluations. The book also includes discussions on conducting complex evaluations, how to manage evaluations, how to present results, and ethical behavior--including principles, standards, and guidelines. The final chapter discusses the future of development evaluation. This comprehensive text is an essential tool for those involved in development evaluation.
