Approach papers

The approach paper is a crucial component of an evaluation as it is the master reference document throughout the evaluation process. It is prepared by the designated IOE lead evaluation officer for the design phase and it includes an evaluation framework, the key evaluation questions and the time frames, as well as a description of the core learning partnership, the skills needed and the proposed communication and learning activities.

The approach paper is also the stage at which key evaluation partners are identified and the specific evaluation methods and techniques for data collection are defined.
