08 January 2013 In Evaluation

Different types of evaluation can take place. In impact evaluation of behavioural projects the interest is in the effect (change of behaviour) and outcome (e.g., energy saved). Process evaluation refers to the systematic assessment of an result efficiency for the purpose of improving its design, its delivery, and the usefulness of the quality of services delivered.

One should note that full separation of process and impact evaluation can be quite difficult and might not always be feasible. Process evaluation supplements impact evaluation by exploring why savings were achieved. It may include examination of the adequacy of the data needed for subsequent impact evaluations.
