Making sense of evaluation: A handbook for everyone

Warning: This handbook contains penguins!1

1No penguins were harmed in the making of this handbook


Now in its second edition, our user-friendly handbook is designed for those working in New Zealand's social sector, and beyond, who need to know more about how to measure and understand the effectiveness of their programmes.

The handbook's introduction covers audience and purpose, and reinforces the importance of language. The  contents are presented in four modules, featuring a penguin case study to ground the theory of evaluation in real life:

Module 1: Getting ready - what is evaluation?

Module 2: Understanding your programme

Module 3: Measuring change

Module 4: Evaluation planning and management
