Yet there is a need to put the theory into practice in a hands-on fashion for practitioners. Calls for rigorous impact evaluation have been accompanied by the quest not just to find out what works but why. It is widely accepted that a theory-based approach to impact evaluation, one that maps out the causal chain from inputs to outcomes and impact and tests the underlying assumptions, will shed light on the why by: Impact evaluation is the main means for empirically testing what actually happens when interventions are implemented.

In parallel to these trends, behavioral economics has increasingly attracted interest within the field of development economics. Prior to the past 2 decades This book is intended to. Book Randomized evaluation Policymakers and practitioners Basic knowledge of evaluation and statistics The book is an indispensable practical guide for policymakers FAIDA impact evaluation practitioners on how to design and conduct impact evaluations of social programs in developing countries.

An impact evaluation provides information about the impacts produced by an intervention - positive and negative, intended and unintended, direct and indirect. This means that an impact evaluation must establish what has been the cause of observed changes (in this case ‘impacts’) referred to as causal attribution (also referred to as causal inference).

Program evaluation does not occur in a vacuum; rather, it is influenced by real-world constraints. Evaluation should be practical and feasible and conducted within the confines of resources, time, and political context.

Moreover, it should serve a useful purpose, be conducted in an ethical manner, and produce accurate findings. ; Keeping and Levy, ; FAIDA impact evaluation and Williams, ).

This article explains the Impact Analysis in a practical way. After reading it, you will understand the basics of this powerful decision making method. What is an Impact Analysis. InAmerican software engineers Robert S. Arnold and Shawn A. Bohner were the first to write about Impact Analysis (IA) in their book ‘Software Maintenance’.

Impact Analysis is a quantitative research. An impact evaluation approach which unpacks an initiative’s theory of change, provides a framework to collect data on immediate, basic changes that lead to longer, more transformative change, and allows for the plausible assessment of the initiative’s contribution to results via ‘boundary partners’.

However, if more projects used rigorous impact evaluation to evaluate their outcomes, many could be refined to better meet the needs of the populations and operate more effectively, which in turn could lead to a faster.

Any impact evaluation will have to rely heavily on the program theory and triangulation to build an argument by plausible association. 5 Chaper 3 of Carol Weiss (), Evaluation, gives an exposition of program theory.

Both the IFAD and AfDB impact evaluation guidelines strongly espouse a theory-based approach. This brief summarizes the results of a gender impact evaluation study, entitled An impact evaluation of education, health, and water supply investments by the Bolivian social investment fund.

This approach to evaluation focuses on the practicali-ties of defining successful outcomes and success cases (Brinkerhoff, ) and uses some of the processes from theory-driven evaluation to determine the linkages, which may take the form of a logic model, an impact model, or a results map.

An impact evaluation aims to determine if the intervention has succeeded in some way and therefore deserves expansion within the setting.

Typically you conduct this research in pilot programs or even at the very start of a line of questioning to evaluate results on a small scale before time and money are spent on a larger study. The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) is the Government of India’s flagship program for rural health.

Among its various components, the ‘Janani Suraksha Yojna’ (JSY), roughly translated as ‘Safe Motherhood Scheme’ aims to encourage women to deliver their babies in medical facilities by providing cash incentives to these women.
