Training Effectiveness is not Evaluated - ADS 253.3 - ADS 203.3.2

USAID policy ADS 253.3 requires missions that expend USAID funds for Participant Training design, implementation or evaluation activities to design and implement participant training for results and impact. Specifically, such missions must plan, track, manage for results, and report on their participant training activities as part of their broader performance measurement, evaluation, and reporting requirements.

ADS 203.3.2 also states that missions are responsible for measuring progress toward the desired results identified in the planning stage to achieve foreign assistance objectives.

General Recommendations

  • Establish procedures for systematically following up with training participants to assess the impact and effectiveness of training.
