Step 5: Evaluation

Evaluation is the systematic collection and analysis of information about project activities, characteristics, and outcomes to reduce uncertainty, improve effectiveness, and make decisions.

Two common types of evaluation can help coalitions develop and implement successful prevention efforts:

  1. Process Evaluation: helps determine if a strategy has been implemented as intended
  2. Outcome Evaluation: assesses the progress towards meeting project outcomes
A good evaluation can help communities become more skillful and exact in describing what they plan to do, monitor what they are doing, and improve service delivery and outcomes. Evaluation results should be used to determining what efforts should be sustained and to assist in sustainability planning efforts. Ultimately, good evaluation will help improve not only your own prevention efforts but those implemented by others.
