Abstract

This is an open-source downloadable that has been developed with community-led citizen science projects in mind. This tool was originally used in the GROW Observatory as a way to evaluate individual and community-based knowledge, practices and interest about soil, science, policy and environment. This tool has been adapted so that you can use it on other types of citizen science projects too.

The Co-Evaluation tool for citizen science projects aims at capturing how participation in a project has changed knowledge, practices and policy. This tool builds on the [Place Standard Tool](http://www.placestandard.scot/); it focuses on ten indicators of the different types of impact that could result from a project. This tool is designed for community members and citizen science practitioners wanting to evaluate a project. It provides prompting questions for discussions amongst participants, allowing communities and project managers to consider these indicators in a methodical way. This tool can be used at the end of a project to assess the impacts and changes achieved. It can also be useful at the beginning of a project as a way to collect a baseline to compare to at the end of the project. Its discussion-based approach also helps create rapport and mutual understanding amongst stakeholders.

This page includes a guidance document which outlines the tool, the steps, resources needed and useful links that can explain the process of using the tool yourself. The page also includes a canvas to be used in conducting this activity with a community.
