Decision tree for choosing your Evaluation design

by Sep 20, 2016

Decision trees are one type of graphs I would love to excel in. In order to do that, you need to practice thinking in an alternative-driven manner and as usual, to creatively play around a concept.

I did this decision tree some time ago, and although there are a number of things that we can agree are arguable (it is done from a positivist point of view when I’m more of a constructivist), but overall I think it is interesting. It displays alternatives on how to decide which methodological design to apply when approaching an impact evaluation and it is done in the form of ruling out non-feasible options:

It looks as too simplistic now that I look at it years later, and my evaluation practice is taking me (or am I taking it?) through very different paths, but still it gathers some interesting concepts in case one day you need them.

Other than that, it’s a good decision-tree-making practice!
