Evaluation Planning

Planning your evaluation is critical to having a successful evaluation. Evaluation planning provides an opportunity to focus your evaluation on things that are most critical for you and your stakeholders to understand about your program. Evaluation planning should be conducted as part of overall program planning so that evaluation is built into your program from the beginning.



Evaluation Planning Resources
