A typical impact evaluation team includes: Principal Investigator(s), Field Coordinator(s), and Research Assistant(s).


Principal Investigator

The Principal Investigator is the lead researcher for the impact evaluation, responsible for leading the Impact Evaluation Design, Data analysis and the final academic paper.

Field Coordinator

The Field Coordinator (FC) is the person responsible for managing the impact evaluation in the country where it is taking place. Field Coordinators are also known as Field Research Assistants or Project Coordinators, depending on the research institution.

The Field Coordinator (FC) is typically responsible for:

  • Liaising with the project implementation team, and related government counterparts. This includes facilitating meetings, updating the team on all impact evaluation related activities and supporting the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) staff.
  • Monitoring project implementation and updating the research team on any changes or threats to the research design
  • Supervising all data collection in the field and serving as focal point for communication with the survey firm

Research Assistant

Impact evaluation teams typically include a research assistant (RA), based in the same location as the PI. The RA is primarily responsible for Data management, Data cleaning, and Data analysis. In some cases, the FC and RA roles are combined.

Impact Evaluation Coordinator

The IE Coordinator is primarily responsible for hiring, supervising, and providing technical support to the RA and FC, and administrative issues (such as grant reporting and procurement). IE Coordinators are also known as Research Managers or Research Coordinators, depending on the research institution.
