Evaluation for learning

Some key points for me:
- Over the past four years we have been shifting from evaluation for proof or accountability (“Did the program work?”) to evaluation for program improvement (“What did we learn that can help us make the program better?”).
- We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to monitoring and evaluation.
- Balance and feedback are key here. How can we get the highest quality information we need, when we need it, to make the best program strategy decisions without undue burden of reporting among those we rely upon for data?
