Evaluation questions are used to focus the evaluation of your rural oral health program. It is important to develop evaluation questions and indicators in the planning stages of the project. It is also never too late to begin thinking about evaluation questions, metrics, and outcomes. To develop evaluation questions, it may be helpful to consider the following:
- What are the desired outcomes of this program?
- How will we get there? What activities will enable us to reach our outcomes?
- How will we know that we are making progress toward the desired outcomes?
Information on the process for developing evaluation questions is available from the Centers for Disease Control.
