This guide to evaluation tends to be focused on events and research dissemination, rather than more concerted community engagement, but does offer a concise and clear introduction to evaluation, summaries of useful approaches to data gathering and analysis and planning templates.
It is an accessible guide at 35 pages in length with a clear introduction and a range of templates that can be adapted, including for monitoring events, and for producing concise case-studies of projects. It is UK focused and deals mainly with events and one-off projects but holds an extensive set of links to guidance on evaluation of science communication, community engagement, arts and heritage and health and wellbeing indicators.
