ERA (in partnership with PDG) have been commissioned by the ZENEX Foundation to undertake a landscape study of M&E (with a specific focus on Educational Evaluation) in South Africa.
The report follows the outline of the Terms of Reference and the findings related to each section are discussed under a separate section heading. The methodology followed with regard to each task, as well as additional information pertaining to each section, is found in the Appendices of this report.
The authors would like to thank all individuals who have participated in the study: academics at universities who have provided us with information, the respondents to the survey of donors as well as those who have been interviewed for more qualitative inputs. We also have to thank staff at CREST and PDG who have assisted with specific data inputs, including Herman Redlinghuys, Kyle Ford, Nozipho Ngwabi, Cara Hartley, Lerato Shai and Comfort Molefinyana.
