Both planning and evaluation are steps in the larger process of program development. Effective program evaluation grows from a specific-measurable-achievable-realistic-and time-defined (SMART) plan, which should be rooted in appropriate learning experiences fitted to a particular audience under conditions known (from research and practice) to result in specific outcomes. An effective evaluation process and results that make sense depends on an intentional plan. For planning purposes, use a logic model from right to left, beginning with outcomes and moving toward inputs. For evaluation purposes use the logic model from left to right (inputs, outcomes, outputs).
