SALTO CD ROM now available online

SALTO produced a CD ROM on evaluating training in European Youth Work, with the help of Sphynx consultancy. To disseminate this knowledge further, the information has also been written here.....

Taking you gently through the How, why and where of evaluation...

Theory is combined with examples of proven methods from extensive experience of evaluating training activities. We have devised a training course – called Just Imagine you made a youth exchange – to illustrate how a team can integrate evaluation into their planning from the very beginning. You will find documents to download and adapt for your own use and some suggestions for going further.


We hope you will find these pages, developed from a CD-ROM, easy to use and challenging to put into practise!

You could start by clicking here for the question "Why should I evaluate?"

  • What is evaluation? FROM THE CD ROM

    Evaluation means the process of judging the quality, importance, amount or value of something. This section goes into the crucial questions: What are we evaluating for? Who is interested in the evaluations? How do we take away the fear of evaluation?
