Program Evaluation Tools
TOC and PL packages
A map to guide activity and a framework for evaluation
Program evaluation tools including theory of change (TOC) and program logic (PL) are arguably the most powerful tools in the evaluation toolbox. They guide not only your evaluation but are key communication, planning and learning tools.

Program logic – Introduction to pipeline PL
