HOW DO PROGRAM PLANNING AND EVALUATION RELATE?
Evaluation design and program (or curriculum) planning cannot be treated as independent activities. As seen in the graphic, you must first set clear goals and objectives and instructional strategies before you can decide how to assess learners or determine the overall success of a program (or curriculum). Findings from the evaluation inform decisions about what modifications may be necessary as you refine objectives, instructional strategies and learner activities. This improvement cycle continues until the program or curriculum achieves its stated goals.
