This interactive tool discusses the different types of evidence that can be used throughout the project cycle to, for example, support theories of action, choice of interventions, and provide formative feedback on how project activities are progressing. It also discusses how to use the evidence collected to monitor progress and fidelity in implementation with the goal of demonstrating ultimate project results, or long-term outcomes. For each phase, the tool identifies what types of evidence might be collected, where they might be found, or how they might be produced and used. The tool includes links to resources that grantees and evaluators might use when evaluating their project.
