We offer training courses both for QuIP data collection and data analysis. If you would be interested in using the QuIP in your work, please get in touch with us using the link at the bottom of the page.


For a comprehensive introduction to QuIP and example case studies, please see our book, Attributing Development Impact: The Qualitative Impact Protocol Casebook, available as a free pdf download by clicking on ‘e-book’. The book, like the QuIP, is rooted in empirics and practice and presents a fresh way to approach the ‘attribution challenge’.


To start…

  • The QuIP briefing paper – an accessible methodological guide which outlines the QuIP approach in the context of other similar evaluation methods, the best place to start!
  • Please take a look at our blog posts as many address methodological questions related to the QuIP.
  • Do also check the pages on our different areas of work as some reports are published here.

Practical Guidelines

A manual for commissioners and field researchers carrying out QuIP studies, including example questionnaires.
