When designing your evaluation approach, it may be helpful to identify the purpose of evaluations. It could help to evaluating the extent to which programs are meeting predetermined goals or objectives. It is recommended to consider the following questions when designing an evaluation:

1)How were the program goals (and objectives, is applicable) established? Was the process effective?
2)What is the status of the program's progress toward achieving the goals?
3)Will the goals be achieved according to the timelines specified in the program implementation or operations plan? If not, then why?
4)Do personnel have adequate resources (money, equipment, facilities, training, etc.) to achieve the goals?
5) How should priorities be changed to put more focus on achieving the goals?
6)How should timelines be changed
7)How should goals be changed? Should any goals be added or removed? Why?
8)How should goals be established in the future?

Yes, a SMART objective is suggested.

A SMART objective is:
• Specific: Is the objective concrete, detailed, and precise enough?
• Measurable: Does the objective include numbers and quantities to provide means of measurement and comparison?
• Achievable: Is the objective feasible and easy to put into action>
• Realistic: When setting the objective, are constraints such as resources, personnel and costs considered?
• Time-bound: Does the objective include a time frame?
