Center for Victim Research (CVR)
This Center for Victim Research (CVR) publication provides an introduction to evaluability assessment, which involves gathering information to "clarify a program's objectives, resources, activities; determine whom the program reaches and how; assess or build its research capacity; and pinpoint areas for improvement before an evaluation takes place." Evaluability assessments are an early stage of a program evaluation and may also be referred to as formative evaluations. This document summarizes the activities commonly involved in such an assessment.
