PROJECT MONITORING AND EVALUATION

2019 Training

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Effective programs and projects are not something that simply happens but are well thought out and planned series of activities and events.  Therefore, in addition to knowing “what the current situation is,” what people think about “it,” what can be done to improve the situation, and what are the results after the fact, realistic Project management planning requires some understanding, knowledge and application of a few statistically-based tools and techniques.  Subsequently, careful monitoring and evaluation should be undertaken to determine whether or not the Project ¾as planned ¾is/was on track; so that timely adjustments can be made, and objectives have a reasonable opportunity of being attained successfully.

This course introduces the participant to the overall philosophy, concepts and particular steps in Project Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, as well as enabling the participant to acquire some “hands-on” skill using statistical tools and techniques for conducting surveys and assessing the results.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
By the end of this course, successful participants will be able to:
  • Appreciate and understand basic terminology and concepts of project evaluation and statistical analysis such as:
    • Difference between auditing, monitoring and evaluation
    • The Logical Framework for project design, monitoring and evaluation
    • Evaluation design models such as experimental, quasi-experimental and case studies
    • Statistical concepts including mean, median, mode, percentage, ratios, indices, standard deviation, regression, necessity and sufficiency and others
    • Experimental treatment and control groups
    • Census and sampling approaches to data collection
    • Random and purposive sampling such as population, sample size, stratification and different sample selection methods
 
  • Know and develop basic skill using project planning, monitoring and evaluation approaches and techniques:
    • Evaluation team composition
    • Judge and jury approaches for qualitative evaluation
    • Random sampling including optimum sample size selection for percentage, and mean 
    • Sample selection methods such as deck of cards, lottery, random number tables, skip interval, questionnaire design
    • Data collection methods like regular reporting and field surveys, mail, phone, interview, observation, rapid appraisal (individual and focus groups)
    • Planning/Targeting assessment formulas
    • Data classification and recording including 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
