To support those undertaking evaluation, Data Cymru have launched an Evaluation Guide. Developed with support from national partners, the guide serves as an introduction to evaluation and sets out the key steps and factors that need to be considered when planning evaluation.
The guide does not try to be the definitive source of information on evaluation. It seeks to cover the key concepts and terminology, including evaluation types, evidence bases and measuring options. It aims to convey the necessary steps required in effective and proportionate evaluation. It also points the reader in the direction of further guidance and support. Data Cymru plan to develop the guide further as public sector understanding and use of evaluation evolves.
