Data Management and Analysis for M&E in Development Programmes Course

DURATION

5 Days

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

At the end if this training, participants should be able to:

  • Understand both random and non-random sampling methods and their use in the M&E Context
  • Establish or reconstruct a baseline and assess your project’s/program’s impact.
  • Use current data collection technologies such as Social Media analytics and Mobile Data Gathering.
  • Understand and Use data analysis software package (STATA).
  • Understand a theory of causal inference that covers both random assignment and observational studies, including quasi-experimental and non-experimental studies
  • Identify the assumptions needed to infer causality in evaluations
  • Describe, compare and contrast six, promising alternatives to random assignment studies for inferring causality, including the requirements for implementing these designs, the strengths and weaknesses of each, and examples from evaluations where these designs have been applied.
  • Understand the various Statistical method for monitoring and impact evaluation
  • Use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and GPS to gather data, collaborate and share information.
  • Communicate findings to stimulate learning and reflection.
