This page is designed to be a dynamic resource of links to useful tools for evaluation.

Please send any links you would like to see included or find useful to admin@visitors.org.uk.

As the page grows we may organise the resources by topic or method or by level but for now you will find below a mixture of entry-level advice and tools for more experienced practitioners.
