Program Evaluation is a methodology for evaluating the efficacy of public sector and non-profit organization programs. It applies performance metrics to address four related elements: (1) development of a program logic connecting program design with objectives, (2) linkage of program inputs (e.g., setup costs and resources) to program participation rates, (3) linkage of participation rates to intermediate outcomes (e.g., completion rates), and (4) linkage of intermediate outcomes to goal achievement. Program evaluation is an important form of economic analysis that can guide future program funding and implementation decisions, as well as enabling mid-course corrections to refine and enhance the effectiveness of ongoing programs.
