I understand that people seldom commission an evaluation without a specific reason, but sometimes an administrator may use program evaluation as a ploy to postpone or avoid deciding, is such reason desirable?

Not really. Some reasons for evaluation are undesirable, especially when administrators know what decision they will make but commission a program evaluation solely to give their decision legitimacy. In such a case, you may try to help them develop better reasons if possible.

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?
