It is important to distinguish between evaluation for accountability and evaluation for learning – a collaborative approach to evaluation that we call ‘evaluative learning’. This paper distills what TCC Group has learned about evaluative learning and provides information and tools to help you take next steps so everyone can ‘learn as we go’. Whether your organization is large and has many resources, or is small and operates on a limited budget and staff, you can use evaluation as a learning tool.
