Evaluation Use

Program evaluation seeks to assess the merit and worth results of public and community sector organizations through the application of social research methods. However, despite efforts to support its use, evaluation remains underutilized. In order to improve evaluation use, we will synthesize the results of several evaluations conducted within one organization to identify general trends that can influence individual programs as well as the entire organization. We are currently working, thanks to the financial support of the Performance and Planning Exchange, on a methodological approach that will support such a synthesis.
