Assessing the Quality of Education Evaluations
This quality assessment of USAID-funded evaluations in the education sector was commissioned by USAID’s Office of Education (E3/ED) to support a larger effort to curate, analyze, and disseminate robust evidence related to the objectives of USAID’s 2011-2015 Education Strategy. The assessment achieves two related objectives:
- Identifies strengths and weaknesses in the quality of USAID-funded education evaluations
- Codifies best practices in designing, implementing and reporting on evaluations for use by USAID Missions, partners, and the education sector at large, as appropriate.
The results of this assessment also inform a related evaluation synthesis study, commissioned by E3/ED, which summarizes findings and lessons learned from Education Strategy-related evaluations published between 2013 and 2016.
