1. Standardization and updating of content
2. Stronger integration between lessons to allow students to understand how knowledge, skills and attitudes aim to be changed in each session / across modules;
3. Upgrading of online content management platform to enable for longitudinal participation (instead of using ad-hoc solutions like WhatsApp; this is not a criticism of past / current uses of ad-hoc social media / chat apps to foster continuity but to note that this is a hidden opportunity that can allow for past students to join an ADHS community of practice and this is an untapped potential of the program).

The TOR asked for robust evidence on three KPIs and three outcome areas. The qualitiative data provided was rich and of a high quality, giving detailed evidence for the outcome areas. However the quantitative data needed further work and the initial claims made by consultants working on the data were questionable. KIT were highly cooperative in remedying these errors when identified.

The TOR asked for benchmarks for the impacts and outcomes which can be used as a point of reference for the endline evaluation. These were eventually provided once problems with the quant data were addressed, however this required considerable input by the commissioners.

The TOR finally asked to provide background information and recommendations to inform the development of the programme. The research of KIT provided rich, detailed information to inform this objecive. However input was needed from the commissioners to develop the recommendations.

Many thanks to KIT for completing this research within a limited timeframe and for being flexible in their approach. The main area of concern arose from work undertaken by external consultants doing quantitative analysis. We had serious concerns about the quality of this work and that these errors were not picked up by the team at KIT. We would recommend reviewing quality control in terms of quantitative and in the quality of work undertaken by external consultants.
