The baseline is a key component of the evaluation process as it provides information on the prevailing conditions of the context and the people for which the program is intended, before the start of the program. It also serves as a benchmark or point of reference to identify how an individual or group of people have changed during the duration of the program and how much difference has the program made to such people. IWORDS Global brings the expertise to conduct baseline and needs assessments from development and humanitarian programmes, be it in contexts of protracted crises, vulnerability or post-disaster situation.
END LINE ASSESSMENT
These are assessments conducted at the end of a programme or intervention, intended to measure the success of that intervention. To measure success, end line assessments use comparative data, usually with baseline assessments. However, baseline data is not always available. For this, innovative approaches to qualitative data collection and analysis must be devised. Our team is expert in designing and implementing innovative participatory evaluation methods in a wide range of contexts and programmes.
