Mid-term Evaluation Report of the Partnership for ODFL in the Pacific

Commonwealth of Learning (COL) together with the COL regional centre (Pacific Centre for Flexible and Open Learning for Development, or PACFOLD) hosted at the University of the South Pacific (USP), are working together to support education continuity, enable equitable access to learning and training opportunities and increase access to relevant, high-quality tools and resources in nine Commonwealth Pacific Island countries (PICs): Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

The purpose of this evaluation is to provide a summative and formative assessment of the initial two years of the five-year funded Project. It seeks to make interim judgements about the efficiency, effectiveness, coherence and alignment, relevance, sustainable development outcomes, gender equality and resilient development outcomes of the Project.

The evaluation methods used to answer these questions included reviewing 147 secondary documents, undertaking a review of 48 of the available resources, and interviewing 20 people relevant to the design and delivery of the Project.
