Link profile: Maximizing the Benefits of Self-Assessment: Tools and Tips
"IDRCâ€™s experience with evaluation and institutional assessment corroborates many of the claims by the proponents of participatory approaches in development. For example, Southern research managers at two recent workshops, one in East Africa, the other in South Asia, forcefully emphasized to donors the advantages of involving recipient institutions in assessments of their own performance. They felt their own information needs were being ignored and that they were being assessed against an unknown set of performance criteria. Whereas project-centred evaluations tend to fragment and undermine institutional learning and change, full participation gives the organization useful experience with the process and ownership of the results."
