Description of actual services provided by your staff within the assignment:
The IRIM evaluation team undertook the final evaluation of the BADP of WV Mongolia between 22 March, 2016 and 10 April, 2016. The evaluation was conducted with the preparation of the survey methods and tools, data collection, data processing and final report preparation. The valuation team followed the below design to evaluate results and implementation of the project.
- Non-experimental: The evaluation team evaluated the impact of the on-going project. This evaluation design was used because it was not necessary to randomly select a control group.
- Post-test only: The evaluation focused on measuring the target group at one point in time after the intervention, focusing particularly on comparing responses of sub-groups based on such characteristics as: level of exposure to the intervention.
Qualitative based: The evaluation was based on qualitative data collection and analysis methods, which helped to define key beneficiaries’ and stakeholders’ perceptions and open views; rather than a quantitative approach.
