Program / Project Monitoring and Performance Evaluation Online 01

PROGRAM / PROJECT MONITORING AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATION

2021 Virtual Training

 

In order to determine whether or not a Program or Project is on track, whether timely adjustments can be made, and whether its objectives will be attained successfully, and are sustainable, Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) is necessary.  “Best Practice” performance evaluation M&E requires understanding, knowledge and application of a few statistically based tools and techniques.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Program / Project Monitoring and Performance Evaluation (Virtual) introduces participants to overall program and project performance monitoring and evaluation concepts and processes, as well as enabling the participant to acquire “hands-on” skill using statistical tools and techniques with templates especially designed for collecting data, analyzing and reporting results.
 
The course is presented in two parts:

  • Initially, an overview of the planning, monitoring and evaluation process is presented, and key terminology, definitions, and tools are reviewed and discussed.
  • Subsequently, instruction in, and direct “hands-on” application with appropriate tools and techniques in a team workshop mode provides participants an opportunity to develop some skills in target setting and performance evaluation, as well as the design and analysis of statistical sample surveys.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  A.  Appreciate and understand the following basic terminology and concepts of Program/Project evaluation and statistical analysis:
  • Difference between Program & Project
  • Difference between Auditing, Monitoring & Evaluation
  • The Logical Framework - for Program/Project Design, Monitoring & Evaluation
  • Typical Indicators of Results Effectiveness & Efficiency
  • Evaluation Design Models - Experimental, Quasi-Experimental and Case Studies
  • Statistical Concepts - Mean, Median, Mode, Percentage, Ratios, Indices, Standard Deviation, Tolerable Error, Confidence Level, Margin of Error, Significant Difference, Correlation, Regression, Necessity & Sufficiency
  • Experimental Treatment and Control Groups
  • Census and Sampling approaches to data collection.  
  • Random and Purposive Sampling - Population, Sample Size, Stratification, and different Sample Selection Methods
  B.  Know, and develop basic skill using the following project planning, monitoring & evaluation approaches, and techniques:
  • Evaluation Team Composition
  • Judge & Jury approaches for Qualitative Evaluation
  • Experimental Treatment and Control Design/Grouping
  • Establishing Sample Frames and Stratification
  • Random Sampling - Optimum Sample Size selection for Percentage, and Mean
  • Sample Selection Methods - Deck of Cards, Lottery, Random Number Tables, Skip Interval, Questionnaire Design
  • Data Collection Methods - Regular Reporting, and Field Surveys; Mail, Phone, Interview, Observation, Rapid Appraisal (Individual and Focus Groups)
  • Planning/Targeting Assessment Formulas
  • Data Classification & Recording - Quantitative and Qualitative Rating Scales, Recording, Weighting/Scoring Systems and Criteria; Likert Scale, 10-point scale, Thai Scale, 4-point scale, rank-ordering, percentage scale, quartile, etc.
  • Data Evaluation - Correlation & Regression, Yule’s Q Test, Misfortune 500
  • Presenting Results - Various Charts and Graphs
