Evaluating and Utilizing Evaluation
The evaluation process constitutes an essential part of the public policy cycles. Most policies or programmes are to be assessed and depending on the results, they are continued, changed or terminated. Thus, evaluation is crucial one of a set of activities for making policy. Evaluation results serve as modes of decision-making for either solving particular problems in the policy formation stage or improving the policy procedures since the policy was implemented. It helps programme managers to improve the programme management and operation. Particularly, the summative evaluation determines effectiveness of the policies or programmes concerned and concludes impact on the problems supposed to be addressed (Parsons, 1995: 550).
Whatever purposes evaluation aims at, the results should be fed back to some stage of the policy processes. In order to utilize the evaluation results, various scientific methods and methodologies are employed to collect and analyze the information.
This paper, therefore, seeks to review the essential elements to make evaluation more effective and then to discuss key ingredients of effective evaluation respectively, in order to achieve the objectives of public policy.
