This Bibliography was generated in November 2012 by Rick Davies, as part of the process of developing a “Synthesis of literature on evaluability assessments” contracted by the DFID Evaluation Department
There are currently 133 items in this bibliography, listed by year of publication, starting with the oldest first. They include books, journal articles, government and non-government agency documents and webpages, produced between 1979 and 2012. Of these 59% described actual examples of Evaluability Assessments, 13% reviewed experiences of multiple kinds of Evaluability Assessments, 28% were expositions on Evaluability Assessments, with some references to examples, 10% were official guidance documents on how to do Evaluability Assessments and 12% were Terms of Reference for Evaluability Assessments. Almost half (44%) of the documents were produced by international development agencies.
The list is a result of a search using Google Scholar and Google Search to find documents with “evaluability” in the title. The first 100 items in the search result listing were examined. Searches were also made via PubMed, JSTOR and Sciverse. A small number of documents were also identified as a result of a request posted on the MandE NEWS, Xceval and Theory Based Evaluation email lists.
This list is open to further editing and inclusions. Suggestions should be sent to email@example.com
