This guide presents considerations for nutrition program evaluations, including a decision tree and description of options for different types of evaluations, differentiating among them by methodology, questions that can be answered, and resource considerations to aid decision making. Common considerations for five key evaluation components are described. The guide includes a decision tree presenting different pathways to guide thinking about what an evaluation is intended to measure, quantify, or compare; and a table that describes various types of program evaluation, with their respective methods of data collection and analysis, relative costs, and sample evaluation questions. While the primary audience for this document is USAID Mission staff, the considerations may be useful for implementing partners, too.
