  • Part 2 (54 mins), Getting Started, looks at where evaluation fits in, connecting evaluation to planning, quantitative vs qualitative data, outcomes vs outputs, writing objectives, outcome vs impact evaluation, and developmental evaluation.
  • Part 3 (9 mins), Getting the Data, looks at putting it all together.
