Pathfinder Advocate Edition: A Practical Guide to Advocacy Evaluation

Innovation Network, Inc | 2009 
This guide is an introduction to advocacy evaluation from the advocate's perspective. It is not a detailed how-to. Reading it won't mean you can go out and evaluate your advocacy work single-handedly. But it will give you a sense of what is involved in advocacy evaluation and help you get the most from an evaluation when the time comes.

The Evaluation Exchange - A periodical on emerging strategies in evaluation

Harvard Family Research Project | 2007
This issue of The Evaluation Exchange helps to build this new field by defining advocacy and policy change evaluation and summarizing the new developments shaping it. The issue describes how advocacy and policy change evaluations differ from other evaluations and offers examples of what those differences look like in real-life evaluation practice. It also features the voices of funders and advocates, who explain what they want from evaluation. And it offers descriptions of new tools—both written and electronic—that we can draw on for ideas.
