Key learnings

Dr Rajib Nandi’s presentation on India Feminist Evaluation groups learning over the past two year evoked many questions like 

What is the difference between feminist and gender-responsive and equity focused evaluation?The word evaluator sounds like external policing. What about community?

Vimala Ramachandran, National University of Educational Planning and Administration

She listed equity issues she came across during meta evaluation of India's flagship programme for achievement of Universalization of Elementary Education. This will give you an idea of how to use gender and equity lens in evaluation.Gender is equated with girls and boys have been excluded from the conversation. The Joint review mission evaluations have been weak in analysis when it comes to various socio-economic factors such as occupation, family income, caste religion and education level of parents. Many girls schools do not offer science subjects.

Howard White from 3 ie mentioned types of bias in evaluation- selection bias, study bias (Having genuine mixed methods is a challenge), agency bias, respondent bias, Evaluator bias, Friends bias.
