BetterEvaluation Rainbow Framework and Planning Tool

Better Evaluation

Created 10/05/2015



This tool can help you to plan an evaluation by prompting you to think about a series of key questions. It can be used to develop a complete evaluation plan, or to undertake a discrete task such as documenting agreements in the evaluation Terms of Reference.  It is important to consider the issues raised in all of the following evaluation planning questions, including reporting, at the beginning of an evaluation.

BetterEvaluation organises options into 32 different evaluation tasks, grouped by 7 colour coded clusters to make it easier for you to choose and use appropriate methods, strategies or processes.

Each of the inpidual clusters of the tool is laid out in a table checklist that identifies the task and the relevant evaluation planning questions and options (methods or strategies) that can be applied in each case.
