HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

When designing your evaluation methodology, you have some choices. The type of evaluation design and data collection methods that you select will depend on a few things:

  1. The program timeline: When will the program begin? Is the program already up and running? Has the program finished?
  2. How many youth are involved in the program: Are there less than 10 youth in the program? Or are there 50?
  3. The type of programming: Is the program resource-based, like a drop-in clinic? Or does the program have a clear timeline with defined enrolment?

Let’s keep these questions in mind as we discuss different ways that we can collect data to measure process and outcome evaluation questions.
