The purpose of most LCCD pilots is to test the suitability of a particular LCCD for the learning environment. So it is vital to establish a monitoring and evaluation process. This involves testing students prior to the introduction of the computers, and then later evaluating how the computers impacted the students’ learning. The evaluation also should include testing the suitability of the LCCD, as well as the utility of the supporting infrastructure and environment.
Costs for evaluation might include the monetary compensation for personnel to carry out the evaluation, as well as the development of "before" and "after" tests. Monitoring and evaluation costs vary by country, depending on the detail and complexity of the evaluation. In Haiti, 3.9 per cent of project costs are set aside for monitoring and evaluating the project. Part of the evaluation in Haiti is based on a standardized test administered by UNESCO throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
