Identifying program evaluations

What does a program evaluation look like?

  • It might not say "program evaluation" in the title! Look for title words like impact, assessing, effectiveness, outcomes
  • Look for evaluative content -- are there data on the impact or effectiveness of a program?
  • Evaluations do not have to be peer reviewed -- they might be think tank reports, GAO reports, CRS reports...
