Impact Evaluation Analytics: This course is designed to introduce students to the principles and applications of project monitoring and evaluation (M and E). The world of international development faces many challenges, one of which is the failure of assistance interventions (aid projects and programmes). Students will develop a practical understanding of the logical processes by which projects are designed and implemented, including the need for external evaluation in order to assess the efficacy, outcomes, and sustainability of these interventions. Lack of project success, more often than not, is a result of inadequate impact evaluation strategies. Students will learn skills to develop strong monitoring and evaluation plans in order to overcome these deficiencies.There are two sections of FRE and ~
