Over the years there has been more of a call for evidence to influence policy and action. While there is increased awareness regarding this issue, deeper analysis is still required on how and why evidence spurs action amongst citizens. This paper explores this issue focusing on the case study of a learning assessment in Nigeria. In this particular case, evidence plays a role in citizen action, but it is important to note the exploratory nature of this work which makes it risky to attribute citizen action to evidence alone. This paper therefore calls for more research in this area.
