Formative Evaluation of Monitoring Results for Equity System (MoRES)

Executive summary

Innovative Iterative Case Study Approach to the Formative Evaluation of Monitoring Results for Equity System (MoRES) – Evaluation Office

Initial findings emerging from the case studies are interesting and reflect the complex and varied application of MoRES.  The evaluation team has followed an iterative process to unpacking and framing the dynamic MoRES concept.  The iterative approaches used in the development of the case studies are innovative.  At the same time established evaluation methods were consistently used to ensure credibility of the findings.

While examining the main elements of MoRES, the case studies also addresses the following five key questions:

  1. What happened during the application of MoRES at the Country Level?
  2. Can MoRES be implemented?
  3. Is it useful to implement?
  4. Is a proof of MoRES concept emerging?
  5. What have we learnt for implementing the concept/system in the future?

To date, twelve light touch case studies and seven in-depth case studies are in the final stages of preparation.  The information from the case studies will feed into the main evaluation report and support UNICEF to better articulate, develop and mainstream the MoRES approach in the future.  After a slight delay on framing the MoRES concept (as a result of the iterative approach) we are expecting the finalization of the main evaluation report at the end of April or May.
