Program Assessment

Many federal funding agencies including NSF and NIH require that proposals include information on how the effectiveness of a proposed program will be evaluated. This section usually contains a brief description of possible metrics for program outcomes and a plan for both formative and summative evaluation of the program that can inform further development and improvement.

As such, it is a collaborative process in which evaluators work closely with research investigators to craft and implement an evaluation design that is responsive to the needs of the program. For example, during program implementation, evaluators can provide formative evaluation findings so that program staff can make immediate, data-based decisions about program implementation and delivery. In addition, evaluators can, toward the end of a program or upon its completion, provide cumulative and summative evaluation findings, often required by funding agencies and used to make decisions about program continuation or expansion.
