Programme Planning

Programme evaluations focus on programme plans to provide reference points for key evaluation foci and activities.  A programme plan should clearly identify:

·         Target groups and intervention groups

·         A goal

·         Objectives

·         Strategy objectives and strategies

 A formative evaluation focuses on developing a programme plan.  Process evaluations focus on assessing whether strategies have been undertaken as planned.  Outcome evaluations focus on assessing progress towards a programmes stated objectives and goal.
