Extension IPM Evaluation Toolkit

Welcome to the ACES Program Evaluation toolkit developed with the following objectives:

  1. Providing basic information regarding evaluation types and strategies suitable for extension professionals
  2. Assist Extension professionals to develop variety of evaluation instruments and data collection methods
  3. Share evaluation resources for extension capacity building (see templates below)

Evaluation Templates/Examples

Here are some IPM survey templates as examples; please download, modify and use them for your needs. Notice that surveys are targeted to specific audience, relate to the project objectives, and the actual training material, instead of being 'generic'. This reduces subjectivity and error. Use multiple types of evaluation to get a better understanding on who is being benefited and how. In other words, survey design, method, and accuracy of questions are important factors for successful evaluations. Make sure you provide time to the audience when evaluating them - do not rush the feedbac process! Please contact for any clarification.
