An overview of the different elements of impact evaluation and options for planning and managing its various stages.
A theory of change can be developed for any level of intervention and explains how activities are understood to produce a series of results that contribute the intended impacts.

Evaluative reasoning is the process of synthesizing the answers to lower- and mid-level evaluation questions into defensible judgements that directly answer the key evaluation questions.
Participatory approaches in impact evaluation involve stakeholders in a range of activities and stages of the evaluation process, including its design, data collection, analysis, reporting and managing of the study.
