The documents listed below are historical, archived information. The information contained in these documents, while accurate at the time of release, may not be the most current available.

Writing an evaluation plan is an essential part of the planning process. An evaluation plan serves as a guide to conducting program evaluations. The plan will:

  • Lay out a cohesive approach to conducting the evaluation and using the results
  • Guide the evaluation by explaining what the activities are, when the activities should occur, how they will be accomplished, and who is responsible for completing them
  • Document the process for all stakeholders
  • Ensure implementation of the evaluation

This document is intended to help TB program staff develop and write an evaluation plan. It consists of a template for writing your evaluation plan, followed by detailed instructions and guidance for filling in each section, as well as a sample evaluation plan.
