Evaluation and Review

HMA has extensive experience in monitoring, evaluation and review projects. These include process evaluation, outcomes evaluation, summative evaluation and meta-evaluation.

We can also provide capacity building support for clients wishing to upskill staff in evaluation concepts.

HMA abides by the Australian Evaluation Society guidelines on ethical conduct of evaluation.

HMA’s approach to developing a monitoring, evaluation or review framework applies a standard conceptual approach, involving:

  • identifying the most appropriate evaluation / review design
  • considering the context, including defining the program logic and key evaluation areas
  • identifying data collection methods
  • identifying approaches to analysing the data, and
  • formulating evaluation / review findings

Examples of our work include:
