Program evaluation is a valuable tool for program managers who are seeking to strengthen the quality of their programs and improve outcomes for the clients they serve. Program evaluation answers basic questions about a program's effectiveness, and evaluation data can be used to improve program services.

I think another important reason is that an evaluation also help to decide if it is the best use of the resources of an organization.

I see, apart from it, I guess the data can also show which parts need to be improved, right?

If so, the data can also demonstrate you why the program work, which part(s) of the program is/are relatively more effective.

Hi there. Collecting questionnaires is really expensive and time-consuming. For NGO staff, it is also very difficult since we have less solid research knowledge. Therefore, I am considering use second-hand data. However, I also found that reliable sources of data on patient behavior (e.g., physical activity or diet) are less available. Could you please help me with this struggle?

Hi everyone, an update! We have decided to utilize an online and paper-based survey to seek the views of gay and bisexual men about our program and their sexual behavior and practices. However, I heard that the data collection methods and analysis used in program evaluation are the same as those used in a standard research project. Is this true? If yes, it would be too difficult for us to use the SPSS software.

Hi everyone! I have found some information from The American Association of Diabetes Educators. They believe changes in patient behavior to be the outcome most sensitive to diabetes self-management support. We are also conducting a program for patients with diabetes. Could you give me a clue about how to measure the behavior changes in patients?

Hi everyone. We realize that patient surveys often are expensive, and relying on patients’ responses to NGO staff. It often could raise the potential for added bias to our evaluation results. I want to ask if you may have any recommendations for it?

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?
