2 Learning Objectives At the end of this session participants will understand: The monitoring and evaluation process by applying each step Use of the design matrix Gender issues in the overall process of monitoring and evaluation
3 Review of the M&E Process Phase 1. Specify model and select design 1.Define the problem 2.Specify the project (program) model 3.Determine your questions 4.Select the design 1
4 Review of the M&E Process (Continued) 5.Identify indicators and measures 6.Develop your data collection strategy 7.Identify analysis strategy Phase 2. Select measures and data strategy 2 2
5 Review of the M&E Process (Continued) 8.Define an integrated, effective dissemination strategy 9.Develop action plan to use findings 10.Monitor the action plan implementation Phase 3: Plan dissemination strategy and use of findings 3
6 Putting It All Together All pieces of your design should connect Make changes to earlier ideas and plans as you obtain new information Test all your data collection instruments and plans to make sure they work the way you expect them to
7 Putting It All Together (Continued) Pre-test every data collection instrument Pre-test in real settings Expert review Review by non-team member
8 Putting It All Together (Continued) Make sure data collection is error free It is hard to correct mistakes after the data has been collected It is worth the time planning and testing your plan
9 Design Matrix A tool that can help focus on all the details It is a visual tool focus is on content not writing style It is a living document planning is an iterative process This is a generic format change it to fit your style Turn to the Micro-credit Design Matrix
10 Checklist: Incorporation of Gender into M&E Have the needs and opportunities for increasing women’s and men’s productivity and production, access to and control of resources, and access to and control of benefits been identified? Have the cultural factors regarding the role of men and women in terms of obtaining health care and becoming health care providers been taken into account?
11 Checklist: Incorporation of Gender into M&E Have the gender dimensions of policy interventions been identified for their potential impact? Do the policy interventions address women’s and men’s needs? Were different groups and organizations representing women’s and men’s interests consulted through the process of goal setting?
12 Checklist: Incorporation of Gender into M&E (Continued) Were the views of men and women taken into account in the process of goal setting and program design and implementation? Do the performance indicators reflect gender concerns? If not, how might they do so? Were/ will both women and men be involved in the participatory monitoring of these indicators? Are measures being taken to build the gender analysis capacity of planning and implementing agencies?
13 Additional Costs & Time to engender data collection/analysis Minimum 2 person team plus 2-3 interviewers for a week for data collection 5 days analysis and report writing Studies can last much longer Participatory Rural Appraisal 4 researcher days per focus group plus travel and incidental costs Focus group interviews Half day workshop Possible gender consultant available to assist in the field during pilot testing of instruments Special training/ supervision of interviewers Small if it can be applied following survey Higher if separate interview required 10% - 15% incremental cost Administration of special modules to sub- samples
