Ethiopia: Request For Proposal – NORAD Midterm Evaluation

Organization: Right To Play
Country: Ethiopia, Jordan, Lebanon, Mozambique, occupied Palestinian territory, United Republic of Tanzania
Closing date: 08 Jun 2018

1.0 RIGHT TO PLAY

Right To Play is an international humanitarian organization that uses the transformative power of sport and play to promote the holistic development of children and youth in the most disadvantaged areas of the world. Right To Play is committed to improving the lives of children and young people and to strengthening their communities by translating the best practices of sport and play into opportunities to promote learning, health and peace.

Right To Play programs foster healthy physical, social and emotional development of children and build safer and stronger communities. Right To Play’s guiding principles are inclusion – which recognizes the importance of children who may be marginalized for reasons of gender, ability/disability, religion, ethnicity, or social background; child protection and safeguarding; and sustainability – which ensures lasting impact.

As such, Right To Play is seeking a consultancy firm/group to undertake the midterm study and learning study for one of its multi-country education programs including planning and revising; data collection; review and cleaning; data analysis; reporting; and dissemination documents. This will include the writing of all accompanying reports as specified in the key deliverables.

2.0 PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Project Name

The Enhancing Quality Education through the Power of Play Program (TAALOM in Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and PAQE in Mozambique, Tanzania, Ethiopia)

Project Locations: Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Mozambique, Tanzania, Ethiopia

Project duration: January 2016-2019

Donor: Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD)

Targeted Direct Beneficiaries in each country:Children and Youth:

Palestine 13,573 (school)

Ethiopia 30,598 (school), 400 (community)

Tanzania 72,700 (school), 5400 (community)

Mozambique 60,613 (school), 4400 (community)

The Enhancing Quality Education through the Power of Play program is a four-year initiative supported by Norad which began in 2016. The initiative seeks to achieve the ultimate outcome of, “Enhanced quality of education for girls and boys in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Palestine (West Bank and Gaza), Lebanon and Jordan.”

While all countries have contextualized logic frameworks, the three main outcomes across all countries include:

  1. Improved learning environments in participating schools through play-based learning

  2. Improved life skills of participating children through sport and play-based learning

  3. Strengthened organizational capacity of civil society organization partners

To improve the learning environments of participating children Right To Play is aiming to build the capacity of teachers to integrate play-based learning into the teaching process by providing in-service teacher training. Throughout the duration of the program teachers will progress through the three-year Continuum of Teacher Training (CoTT) completing sessions on play-based learning and the creation of a positive learning environment which includes orienting teachers to issues related to child safeguarding and protection, gender equality and inclusion.

Through participation in play-based learning activities, both in the classroom and in the community, children will have opportunities to build their life skills. Right To Play activities are designed to foster healthy child and individual development and strengthen life skills.

Across all countries, the program is grounded in a new organizational civil society impact strategy that emphasizes strong civil society partnerships to achieve scalable and sustainable program impact. In order to nurture strong civil society partnerships, Right To Play is focusing on developing ways of collective learning, capacity building and advocacy with partners.

In addition to these outcomes that are measured across all countries, each country has a contextualized results framework in which some countries have additional outcomes which also require measurement. These include:

  • Barriers to education are addressed through community-based interventions (Lebanon)
  • Improved awareness of community and other stakeholders of barriers to education (Ethiopia)
  • Improved capacity of education supervisors and educators to integrate play-based learning methodology within the teaching and learning process (Ethiopia)
  • Improved commitment of community stakeholders to address barriers to education (Mozambique and Tanzania)

4.0 SCOPE OF THE MID-TERM EVALUATION

The midterm study for the Norad program will be conducted using a phased approach to ensure that midterm data is analyzed for all countries by March 29th, 2019. Right To Play anticipates an overarching timeline of July 2018 to July 2019, whereby data collection will occur in October and November 2018 in the Africa region and February 2019 in the Middle East region. This timeline will allow for the review and revision of existing measurement documents, planning for data collection, and the development of both global and country specific midterm reports. The timing for data collection was set based on school schedules in each country.

The initial phase of the midterm study will involve a comprehensive review of all existing Norad program, monitoring, and evaluation plans including the performance measurement framework, evaluation and analysis framework and measurement tools.

A fieldwork/data collection administration and logistics plan will be developed and implemented in the six countries of implementation, ensuring collaboration with and some knowledge transfer to Right To Play country teams. Travel will be required and the consultancy team will be required to develop a robust data collection strategy for each country as well as ensure the ability to source, hire and train (as needed) enumerators, research assistants, and/or associates with the ability to collect large amounts of qualitative and quantitative data.

The final phase of the midterm study process will consist of the review, cleaning and analysis of data collected and drafting of multi-country and country-level reports. The consultancy team must also produce relevant communication and dissemination documents (presentation slides for example) that summarize findings from the evaluation at the global and country-levels.

In addition to the data collection for the midterm evaluation, some additional data will be collected to inform a learning study. This learning study will focus on one country, potentially Tanzania, and focus on one key research question related to the implementation of play-based learning. The specific research question and scope of the learning study will be determined through discussions with key Right To Play offices once a consultancy group has been selected. The consultant will work with Right To Play to develop a measurement strategy for this research question as well as develop any additional data collection instruments that are required. A separate report will be required to present the results from the learning study.

For further details please reference the key deliverables section.

5.0 EVALUATION THEMES AND QUESTIONS

In addition to providing data on the specific indicators outlined in the project’s performance measurement framework, the mid-term assessment should also respond to the following specific evaluation questions:

Effectiveness: assess the achievements of the project in relation to its intended outcomes/results. This should be a systematic assessment of progress against the performance measurement framework. Other factors to consider in assessment of effectiveness include:

  • Which outcomes/results have been achieved both expected and unexpected?
  • Which objectives/outcomes have been most useful and successful? What were the success factors?
  • What changes occurred in the performance/behaviour of beneficiaries?
  • What is the scope/magnitude of the change achieved in comparison to baseline?
  • What was not achieved (failures, missed opportunities, challenges) and why?

Impact: assess the extent to which the project is contributing to its ultimate outcome and to a long-term positive effect on the target groups/beneficiaries

  • How has the project contributed to reported changes and to what extent can the changes be attributed to other external factors?
  • Have there been any unintended results/outcomes at this point?

Sustainability:

  • Are there indications that elements of the project will be sustainable over the coming years? What are these and what are the factors which will determine whether or not they will continue?
  • Are there indications that the project contributes to lasting benefits? Which organizations could/will ensure continuity of project activities in the project areas?

6.0 LOCATION

The evaluation planning phase is expected to be carried out at the consultants’ base, with significant collaboration with Right to Play’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning team. Face to face meetings may be required, and as such, travel will be expected.

For the field work and data collection, extensive in-country travel is expected within all six implementing countries (Lebanon, The Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Tanzania, Mozambique and Ethiopia). The evaluation findings dissemination period may also require travel to these countries, but this is to be confirmed.

7.0 METHODOLOGY

The first phase of the consultancy will involve a document review of the baseline study evaluation framework, analysis framework, sampling framework, accompanying data collection instruments, and findings. Some revision to the data collection instruments used at baseline may be required.

The second phase of the consultancy will involve the planning and implementation of the midterm evaluation that will enable Right To Play to determine project contribution to the achievement of expected outcomes. In addition, the learning study may be planned and implemented simultaneously to inform strategic learning for Right To Play. As the fieldwork will occur in the countries of implementation, the consultancy is expected to collaborate significantly with Right To Play country teams in order to successfully conduct the field work.

The final phase of the consultancy is the analysis of the data collected and the production of global and country midterm reports, a learning study report and appropriate dissemination documents, all of which will need to incorporate feedback from relevant Right To Play staff.

Through significant, collaborative engagement with relevant staff at Right To Play, particularly the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning team, it is expected that the consultancy will strengthen the organizations’ M&E capacity, particularly in the development and implementation of sound, rigorous research activities. As such, the consultancy will be expected to share and contribute to the Right To Play’s knowledge-base while deepening the capacities of the organization to more effectively conduct research in the future.

Data Collection Tools

At baseline, the evaluation design framework consisted of a toolkit of data collection instruments, which included:

  • Classroom Observation tool
  • Life Skills Assessment
  • Focus Group Discussions (children, teachers and parents)
  • Interview Guides (school administrators, teachers and CSO partners)

The research planning process will entail an in-depth training of enumerators. Consideration will be given to firms who have implemented data collection using mobile tools and software depending on country and financial proposal.

Data Analysis

Data will be analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively and will cover all areas included in the performance measurement framework. An analytical framework was developed as part of the evaluation design process at baseline, which details the specific analytical methodology that was used to produce the result for each indicator measured. For the midterm study, the selected consultant will be expected to review this analytical framework as a basis for the midterm data analysis to ensure that data is comparable to baseline results.

The consultant is encouraged to utilize analytical software to analyze both the quantitative (e.g. Excel, SPSS, STATA, R), and qualitative (e.g. Nvivo) data. Outputs/datasets from data analysis will be submitted as part of the deliverables, as will the scripts (or list of commands) with clear notes/guidance, particularly for quantitative data analyzed (in SPSS, STATA, R).
