•Formative Evaluation (monitoring approach) is "... evaluation designed, done, and intended to support the process of improvement (Scriven, 1991).”
•Summative Evaluation (outcome-oriented approach)
-typically involves the preparation of a formal report outlining the impact of a program.
-For instance, an evaluation report will typically detail who participated in a program, what activities affected them, and what gains or improvements, resulted from their participation

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?
