What is purpose of evaluation?

Evaluation is a process that critically examines an intervention. It involves collecting and analyzing information about a project, policy and program’s activities, characteristics, and outcomes.

The purposes of an evaluation will inform (and be informed by) the evaluation timelines, resources, stakeholders involved and choice of evaluation options for describing implementation, context and impact. The final purpose is to make judgments about a program, project or policy to improve its effectiveness, efficiency and/or to inform programming decisions.
