Impact assessment studies and their implications for policy making

This report presents the outcomes of two evaluation projects implemented in Russia and Morocco with a common aim: to assess public training policies. In the Russian case a qualitative, interpretative approach was applied to evaluate the impact of management training, whereas in the Moroccan case a quantitative approach was applied to evaluate the impact of in-service training. The difficulties encountered whilst carrying out these impact evaluations are described as well as the merits and limitations of the different evaluation models applied.
