Evaluation

Miles Morgan brings a strong theoretical and practical focus to all our evaluation projects to ensure we provide an evidence and outcomes-based evaluation that tests the responsiveness of programs and projects to their intended purpose or outcome. Our approach to evaluation and research design is underpinned by both ethical and intellectual rigour, but also a commitment to achieving useful and actionable results that are responsive to the needs of clients and policymakers. Our membership of the Australian Evaluation Society commits us to meeting the highest standards of ethical evaluation practice.

Some examples of projects we have undertaken in Evaluation are detailed below.
