What will get generalized at the end of the evaluation? How will learning be spread?
Be clear about what learning can be generalized and used to inform the development of other initiatives. Will the evaluation be making recommendations regarding scaling up or replicating the initiative? What kinds of learning will be spread as a result of the evaluation?
- Dialogue with key stakeholders early in the initiative and also periodically over the initiative to clarify what kinds of learning from the evaluation needs to be “spread.”
