This discussions is a forum for Mesh members to post evaluation questions, either general or specific to their project, as part of Mesh's July 2016 Evaluation Month.
What evaluation challenges do you face? What do you want to know about evaluation?
Post your questions throughout July so that others in the Mesh community can share insights and resources and at the end of July we will collate your questions and, for those that haven't been answered, find the right people to answer them!
