Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact


Outcome-Based Evaluation

Outcome-based evaluation is a systematic method for assessing the extent to which a program has achieved its intended results.  It answers the key questions:  “how has a program made a difference?” and “how are the lives of program participants better as a result of the program?”.  Outcome-based evaluation can help provide information that helps organizations and programs report back to their key audiences, improve program quality, make decisions about resource allocation and communicate about results.
