LFA has developed a series of considerations – summarized in checklist format – as one tool to help us, and our partners, incorporate an equity lens into evaluation work. The checklists (1) Encourage us to be intentional and proactive about authentically representing multiple perspectives, and (2) Pose critical questions designed to challenge our biases and illuminate where we can be more inclusive and culturally responsive. The checklist series is organized into eight parts, which align to critical junctures in the evaluation process. Download the Checklist Overview, as well the eight individual checklists: Project Design, Evaluation Project Launch, Evaluation Plan & Timeline Development, Evaluation Project Mid-Point Check-In, Theory of Change & Logic Model Development, Instrument Development & Data Collection, Data Interpretation & Analysis, Reporting & Presenting Findings.
