Guide to Setting Targets for Research Questions
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
The Guide to Setting Targets for Research Questions is designed for organizations implementing solutions, with support from a research partner. The research partner could be staff within the organization who have expertise in evaluation, or an external organization, technical assistance provider, or consultant. Using this guide will help organizations and their research partner set and use targets in their evidence-building work.
This guide is part of a suite of measurement and evaluation tools designed to support organizations as they develop, refine, and scale evidence-based solutions (programs, products, or practices) that demonstrate success in improving educational outcomes for students who are Black, Latino, and/or experiencing poverty and promote the adoption of evidence-based solutions more broadly.
