USAID/Macedonia and Social Impact

The evaluation was carried out by a four-member joint SI-USAID team between April and June 2014. The Team Leader and Evaluation Specialist from SI were joined by two regional USAID colleagues from USAID/Serbia and USAID/Bosnia. The team used a simple ex-post performance evaluation design relying on a qualitatively dominant but still mixed-methods approach involving (1) a desk review; (2) semi-structured key informant interviews; and (3) site visits to schools involving semi-structured key informant interviews, observation, focus groups, and mini-surveys. Fieldwork took place in 11 cities throughout Macedonia, and the team visited 16 schools and interviewed 387 respondents in May 2014.
