Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation

Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation

CGHEGHE provides direct and indirect support to the DoD GHE enterprise in order to build capacity to conduct assessment, monitoring, and evaluation (AME) within DoD GHE programs and activities. AME is a required component of Security Cooperation activities (which includes most DoD GHE activities) per DoDI 5132.14, Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation Policy for the Security Cooperation Enterprise. 

CGHE educates DoD GHE professionals and conducts research on topics such as: 

    • How to operationalize militarily relevant goals and objectives (e.g. build capacity, enhance readiness, develop partnerships, etc.)  for the purposes of planning and evaluation; 
    • How Theories of Change can be developed in order to develop rigorous project and programmatic plans and how these theories of change can be empirically tested in order to support evaluation efforts; and
    • The value of effective data collection in the planning and operational stages in order to support evaluations conducted until three years after project completion.
