Integrity presents at the 2018 UKES Annual Evaluation Conference
Integrity participated in the 2018 UK Evaluation Society (UKES) Annual Evaluation Conference in London on the 2nd and 3rd of May. The theme of the conference was ‘The Quality of Evidence from Evaluation – Demand, supply and use’.
Integrity was represented at the conference by Joe Savage (Head of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning), Toby Pragasam (Deputy Director Services) and Jessica Hayes, (Senior Expert). The Conference provided Integrity the opportunity to share our work and learn from peers and clients within and beyond the international development sector.
Jessica gave a well-received presentation on the opening morning of the conference, reflecting on her experiences as Deputy Team Lead on Integrity’s multi-year evaluation of the Institutes for Inclusive Development programme (DFID Tanzania).
“We are trying to understand what evidence is driving adaptation” – Jessica Hayes, Senior Expert at Integrity
Jessica’s presentation focused on how we can achieve quality in evaluations of adaptive programmes. Her presentation emphasized the importance of external evaluations which look both at the results as well as the effectiveness of adaptive programming.
Integrity provides services to support evidence-based decision making. “As evaluators assessing adaptive programming, we are trying to understand what evidence is driving adaptation,” Jessica highlighted during her presentation. Integrity looks at the decision-making points of programmes and identifies the types of evidence the programme relies on to make those decisions using a five-step approach.
