Use this checklist as you seek to build evidence of effectiveness for your intervention. Under “Define intervention,” “Lay evaluation groundwork,” “Prepare for evaluation,” and “Conduct evaluation and assess effectiveness,” select the items that reflect the status of your efforts in building evidence.
Ideally, you would make sure all items in a section are complete before moving to the next section. Ultimately, should the intervention be shown to be effective, you would get ready to scale the intervention (see Step 3 of the SCALER). Should the evidence not indicate effectiveness, the organization should continue to build evidence.
