Planning for evaluation

In relation to projects or any activity that aims to bring about a change, it is important to plan the evaluation at the same time as planning the project itself, not during or afterwards. This will allow you to measure results as you implement changes.

Monitoring might be carried out on a continuous basis or, at regular intervals such as monthly or quarterly; evaluation generally tends to have a longer time period. Projects that run for several years might typically include a planned evaluation at annual intervals.
