A REVIEW OF THE STATE OF IMPACT EVALUATION Howard White, Shampa Sinha and Ann Flanagan Independent Evaluation Group, World Bank 1. INTRODUCTION Impact evaluation is increasingly recognized as an important part of the evaluation toolkit, resulting in calls for ‘more and better’ impact evaluation. This call has been. focuses on how to implement an impact evaluation, beginning in chapter with how to use the rules of program operation—namely, a program’s avail-. able resources, criteria for selecting beneﬁ ciaries, and timing for. implementation—as the basis for selecting an impact evaluation method.
This book reviews quantitative methods and models of impact evaluation. The formal literature on impact evaluation methods and practices is large, with a few useful overviews. Yet there is a need to put the theory into practice in a hands-on fashion for practitioners. A regional evaluation study aims at assessing and categorizing undiscovered oil and gas resources, and defining regional exploration targets. A typical regional exploration study will consist in integrating available surface and subsurface information and interpretations such as structural geology, stratigraphy, sedimentology and geochemistry. Purpose of impact evaluation Impact evaluation serves both objectives of evaluation: lesson-learning and accountability.2 A properly designed impact evaluation can answer the question of whether the program is working or not, and hence assist in decisions about scaling up. However, care must be taken about generalizing from a specific context. This paper does not intend to provide a detailed account of different approaches to impact evaluation nor an overview of proposed solutions to specific impact evaluation challenges2. Instead it defines and reviews the case for combining qualitative and quantitative approaches to impact evaluation.

As you read, make notes on how answers to these questions are likely to influence the method of impact evaluation. Make a note of the difference between ‘simple’, ‘complicated’ and ‘complex’ projects and how each type will require a different approach to impact evaluation.
