IEG is pleased to present this guidebook for evaluators and other evaluation stakeholders. It provides an introductory overview of a range of methods that have been selected for their actual and potential use in the field of international development evaluation.
For each method, a detailed guidance note presents the method’s main features and procedural steps, key advantages and disadvantages, as well as its applicability. Each guidance note includes references for relevant background readings (basic and advanced) as well as references to other additional resources of interest. Both the choice of approaches and methods and the associated guidance are by no means definitive.
IEG plans to periodically update the guide as evaluation practices evolve.
