This report leads with 5 principles policymakers should consider when designing evaluation plans for their 2Gen efforts:
- Measure and account for outcomes for both children and parents;
- Embed learning and evaluation in policy design and systems development;
- Use multiple approaches;
- Use and promote data; and
- Build internal capacity and ensure continuous feedback through evaluation efforts.
We strongly believe that establishing a set of principles will ground 2Gen efforts and help agency staff, community partners, and other stakeholders understand what guides the learning and evaluation process.
