- Thd purpose of evaluation research is to measure the effects of a program against the goals it set out to accomplish as a means of contributing to subsequent decision making about the program and improving future programming. Within that definition are four key features : "To Measure the effects" refers to the research methodology that is used. "The effects" emphasizes the outcomes of the program, rather than its efficiency, honesty, morale, or adherence to rules or standards. The comparison of effects with goals stresses the use of explicit criteria for judging how well the program is doing. The contribution to subsequent decision making and the improvement of future programing denote the social purpose of evaluaion.
