INESAN understands evaluation as a process of systematic collection, processing and information sorting, whose the target of which is rational determination and objective value measurement. We achieve evaluation by way of controlled Merit and Worth research of the evaluation evaluated object. Evaluation can help improve the quality and increase the effectiveness of performed programs or projects and of performance optimization, in addition to securing valid and useful feedback.
We are primarily specialized in the following evaluation areas:
- Meta-evaluation (the evaluation of realized evaluation)
- Intervention Program Evaluation (the evaluation or assessment of measures, the aim of which is to change or form the behavior of individuals, social groups or organizations)
Needs analysis is a type of evaluation that lets identify the discrepancy between the current state and the needs of the target.
Process evaluation verifies the functioning of specific forms of an intervention program or project; monitors whether key activities are actually carried out and examines whether these activities are consistent with the objectives of the program or project.
The subject of evaluation of project documents is to determine whether a particular offer is feasible and whether there are objective and empirically verifiable assumptions to ensure that the project plan has led the implementation to meet its goals.
Intervention programs are understood to be measures introduced by public and private organizations to stimulate desirable forms of behavior of specific target groups.
Evaluation of communication and promotional activities verifies the public awareness or specific target groups of the existence of the communication and promotional activities.
Evaluation of educational activities focuses on the analysis of conferences and the evaluation of specific activities in the field of continuing education and professional development such as training courses, trainings and seminars.
Meta-evaluation is simply an evaluation has been carried out evaluation survey. It focuses on the systematic analysis of the factual basis for the primary (assessed) evaluation of the suitability of methods and techniques and how to perform a primary evaluation in the context of applicable professional standards.
Social analyses which we deal with are focused on societal issues within the identified priority thematic areas. INESANs´ analyzes usually include a whole set of interrelated research activities; this distinguishes social analyzes from ordinary research. As part of the implementation of social analyzes, INESAN employees focus on examining the mutual interaction of a selected problem and its social context, which allows the analyzed problems to be described and evaluated in detail.
In the area of social analysis we are focused on:
- Primary and secondary research
- Synthesizing, comparative and analytical study
- Case studies
- Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI)
- Personal Interview (Face-to-Face)
- Individual In-depth Interviews (In-depth Interviews)
- Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ)
- Querying with the Computer (Computer Assisted Self-Interviewing – CASI
