This evidence checklist will help you understand our evaluations

Evidence type: evaluation

Our new evidence checklist is designed to help you understand the type of evaluation evidence that exists for an intervention or programme. It acknowledges that there is a broad range of evaluation evidence, all of which has a role to play in understanding whether an intervention works - as well as how, when, for whom and, most importantly, why it works.

Our checklist will give you a quick description of the type of evidence that exists for an intervention, and the accompanying evidence summary will give more detail about what that evidence will (and won’t) tell you.

A checklist category is only checked if the evidence meets a set of minimum criteria, which we will publish on these pages soon.
