Evaluation allows us to document the impact of a programme or project and demonstrate the relationship between an action and the reaction. Through this we can learn from and replicate positive elements and also avoid reproducing any negative elements. Not all methods of evaluation suit every project or activity and so new techniques have been developed to better understand the impact of projects, such as Realist Evaluation. Realist Evaluation uses a Context, Mechanism and Outcome (CMO) framework to allow us to understand what happened, why it happened, what the context was in which it happened, whether it would happen again in a different context and whether the outcome was attributable to the activity.
This workshop on Realist Evaluation will provide an introduction to realist methods, understanding when and why it may be the most appropriate method of evaluation. We will look through CMO configurations and look at how we identify and measure each individual component, as well as exploring where the methodology fits in relation to relevant projects.
