  • An activity designed to measure and judge the merits of a government policy or program. An exploratory evaluation refers to the method and approach by which the evaluation is conducted with no original basis of study or model used. Exploratory evaluation usually occurs after the fact. Other methods are used to either formulate or evaluate policy, such as systems analysis, simulation, and benefit-cost analysis. At the onset of the evaluation, hardly anything is known about the policy, and the approach is initially about abstracting and generalizing the policy and related information at hand. It is imperative to approach the subject matter from several different viewpoints, either from the angles of various established policies or just from miscellaneous practical points of view.
