Appraisal, assessment of a project or programme.
an assessment at a point in time of the value, worth or impact of a project or program. Evaluations can be conducted at various points in a project or at the end of a project. Some of the purposes of evaluation include: to find out if clients' or community needs were met; to improve a project of program; to assess the outcomes or impacts of a program; to find out how a program is operating; to assess the efficiency or cost-effectiveness of a program; and to understand why a program does or does not work. While there are many forms of evaluation, two main approaches can be identified: 'open inquiry' and 'audit review'. The open inquiry approach aims to improve or change projects. It asks questions such as 'what's working, what's not working?', 'how could we improve things?', and 'what are the community's needs?' Methods such as focus groups and interviews are preferred. In contrast, the audit review approach involves measuring how well project objectives were met and the impacts of projects. It asks questions such as 'what did we set out to achieve?', and 'what are the signs that we have done this?'. Methods such as structured surveys are often preferred. ( back)
