It focuses more on relatively longer-term outcomes when comparing to those of formative evaluation.

Yes. In other words, summative evaluation yields a final report of a project.

We normally collect information and data throughout a project. However, the findings and results are adopted to demonstrate the impact of the projects.

Formative assessment usually gives monthly or quarterly reports regarding meeting objectives and completing project activities.

Agree. Apart from it, it gives information regularly to the organization itself as well as a funder.

It starts in an early stage and it is used for making decisions in terms of changes or improvements during the implementations of a project/program.

In my evaluation project, I used a new scale that had never been tested among Hong Kong patients. Do I need to conduct a factor analysis before data analysis?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
