Developmental Evaluation

The Innoweave Developmental Evaluation (DE) self-assessment tool is designed to help you determine your organization's readiness to attend an Innoweave DE workshop, as well as the suitability of your initiative or program model to developmental evaluation. 

Please respond to each of the questions to the best of your ability by choosing the option that most accurately reflects your organizational context. Following the self-assessment, some advice and further information will be provided to help you make the decision about applying for the Innoweave Developmental Evaluation workshop.

1Are you doing one or more of the following:

  • Creating an entirely new model (i.e. program, strategy, policy, etc.) from scratch
  • Adapting a model (i.e. program, strategy, policy, etc.) to respond to a context that is constantly and quickly evolving (i.e. social, economic, political, demographic, institutional)
  • Replicating a model that emerged in one context and adapting it to a new context
  • Exploring real-time solutions as a rapid response to a sudden major change or a crisis (e.g. a natural disaster, financial melt-down, organizational failure)
  • Trying to create major systems change (e.g. restructuring workforce development systems, developing a regional service delivery model)
