PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS FOR EVALUATION
The design and conduct of an evaluation can be undertaken competently only when the program is planned and implemented in ways that allow measurement of objectives, assessment of program implementation, and identification of the target population. Every evaluator cannot be a planner and program implementor. But the links between program and evaluation do require mutual understanding of the tasks and processes involved on both sides -- thus the need to introduce considerations of planning and program designs. The requirements of developing an intervention model and defining targets discussed here are necessary both for policy-level and technical-administrative-level evaluations.
