How good is my evidence?: a guide to assessing the quality of self-evaluation evidence (2020)

Sometimes we are asked ‘How do I know my evidence is good enough?’ The answer is not straightforward, because it depends on a number of factors. This guide takes you through a series of steps that allow you to answer this broad question.


This guide is aimed at helping third sector organisations to assess how good their evaluation evidence is. It does not tell you how to set and measure, analyse and report on outcomes. But, it should help you to think about why and how to improve evidence collection, analysis and reporting.
