Your organization is doing a wonderful project to help deaf people! Meanwhile, you want to understand which parts of your project help the most so you can improve. You also want to help funders understand why your project works so well. Might an evaluative case study help?
Most project evaluations look at everyone who benefits from the project. These analyze how the project affects an entire group or community. But in a case study, you only look at one case. For example, you might choose one family. Then you analyze, with a lot of details, how the project affects them. Some projects do not need an evaluative case study. But for some projects, it can help people understand better.
USAID published this guide in 2013. Meanwhile, the guide is for organizations receiving USAID funding. But the information in the guide will help anyone learn about evaluative case studies.
The PDF file is accessible for people using screen reading software. For example, it uses alternative tags to describe images for people who can’t see them. But it does not use bookmarks.
