ETH Zürich, Centre for Development and Cooperation (NADEL) Impact evaluations are a key tool for making evidence-informed decisions to increase the social impact of projects, policies and organizations. The objective of this course is to enable participants to use existing impact evaluations for project planning and to commission and manage new impact evaluations for their organizations. The course provides an overview of the most often used quantitative methods for impact evaluation as well as their strengths and weaknesses. Participants will discuss and learn from existing impact evaluations within the field of development cooperation and policy. Using case studies that participants will bring from their own organization to the course, they will conduct all the steps involved in an impact evaluation –planning, implementation, analysis and reporting. To follow the course, participants should be familiar with the topics and concepts covered in the course “Planning and Monitoring of Projects” and „Evaluation von Projekten“.
