| A basic guide to evaluation for development workers |
In 19921 drafted the evaluation section of a proposed Oxfam procedures manual on project management. An adapted form has provided material for the Oxfam Handbook for Development and Relief, edited by Deborah Eade and Suzanne Williams. Some similarities may be found between this guide and parts of that text, as drafts have been swapped between us.
Particular thanks are due to Deborah Eade and Bridget Dillon, for comments, editing and friendship. Thanks, too, to Robert Nicholls for being a critical 'guinea-pig' at a particularly busy time.
This short guide to evaluation was originally intended for use within Oxfam but we hope that it will also be found helpful to a wider readership.
