Monitoring (process, formative, mid-term evaluation) monitoring is a form of evaluation or assessment, though unlike outcome or impact evaluation, it takes place shortly after an intervention has begun (formative evaluation), throughout the course of an intervention (process evaluation) or midway through the intervention (mid-term evaluation).

Often a process evaluation can set the stage for an outcome evaluation ultimately, process and outcome evaluations have a range of practical purposes, including providing data to appropriately modify an existing program and producing evidence of promising practices.
1 process and impact evaluation process evaluation = systematic assessment of the programme for the purpose of improving its design, its delivery, and the usefulness of the quality of services independent programme evaluations typically contain both process and outcome evaluation the main benefit of independent evaluation is an. Training program evaluation is a continual and systematic process of assessing the value or potential value of a training program results of the evaluation are used to guide decision-making around various components of the training (eg instructional design, delivery, results) and its overall continuation, modification, or elimination. Outcome and impact evaluation 17 resources as you walk through the steps of implementing a health program and monitoring its processes and outputs, you will eventually need to answer the basic, but often difficult, questions of whether and by how much the program achieved its intended outcomes, for example, of reducing morbidity and mortality.

The program evaluation process goes through four phases — planning, implementation, completion, and dissemination and reporting — that complement the phases of program development and implementation each phase has unique issues, methods, and procedures in this section, each of the four phases. Key points •evaluation is a process, not an event •good evaluations are planned •good evaluations will yield usable data •key stakeholders should be involved •anyone can conduct an evaluation.
