Program/project evaluation is a formalized approach to studying the goals, processes, and impacts of projects, policies, and programs. Program/project evaluations can involve quantitative methods of social research, qualitative methods, or both. Program/project evaluation provides formative feedback that helps guide a program/project as it is being implemented. It also provides summative data that clearly demonstrates that the program/project is accomplishing its stated goals and objectives. The evaluation option requires a program or project is identified and agrees to participate, and that the evaluation process is designed and implemented.
