Research & Evaluation

Research & Evaluation


You’ve worked with us to analyse your data and identified that there is a road safety issue, but what do you do next?

  • How will you know what the best practice approach to designing and delivering is?
  • How will you ensure you maximise your resources by not reinventing the wheel?
  • How will you make sure that your solution is the most appropriate method for addressing the behavioural issue you are seeking to resolve?
  • How will you know that there are no unintended side effects?

Commissioning Agilysis to assist you with research and evaluations will bring an evidence-led approach to your road safety and active travel interventions. We will help you to challenge assumptions and redefine problems to identify alternative best practice strategies and solutions to increase effectiveness.

We have a solution-based approach to addressing problems.

We tailor evaluation and research services to your needs, from offering advice on designs and research methods through to providing full independent research projects, acknowledging that each project is different and requires a unique response.

Projects can include some or all of the following:

  • literature reviews and strategy assessments
  • defining and refining clear aims and objectives
  • creating logic models to explain how the intervention will meet these aims and objectives
  • coding behaviour change techniques used in interventions
  • selecting the most appropriate evaluation design and research methods
  • project management
  • results analysis
  • statistical testing
  • report writing
