  • Reporting cost is an important part of evaluations
  • Collecting the right information can be theoretically and practically challenging
  • Evaluators should be sharing experiences and best practice
costs to consider collecting
Costs to consider collecting
  • Direct costs – how much would it cost a school or parent to buy the intervention?
    • how much did it cost may differ
  • Indirect costs – do staff have to put in more hours than usual?
    • always think: what is the counterfactual?
  • Needs to be quantitative information
collecting cost information
Collecting cost information
  • Impact or process evaluation?
    • cost effectiveness relates to impact...
    • ...but process methods e.g. surveys, case studies, often better suited to cost data
  • Planning and communication
    • across evaluation project team
    • with development partner
reporting cost information
Reporting cost information
  • Present the average cost to compare with average effectiveness
  • Cost per pupil or per school?
    • may depend on the specific intervention
    • cost per pupil is comparable to other interventions
  • Present the assumptions made and data sources used
sharing best practice
Sharing best practice
  • Recommend agreeing principles for a common approach among evaluators
  • Questions?
