Planning is an important part of program evaluation. Proper planning efforts include outlining the purpose of the evaluation and specifying end-users of the results. Selecting indicators is also part of the planning process and logic models and other evaluation planning tools are used to facilitate mapping out intended program outcomes. Evaluation design decisions are made during the planning process. Data collection methods and procedures are recorded. Good planning activities also involve making project timelines, a list of task responsibilities, and an evaluation budget.
