Process evaluation usually refers to an evaluation that focuses on the activities and events that occur as a program is delivered; that is, things that occur between a specification of inputs and occurrence or measurement of outputs. Process evaluation focuses on how a program was implemented and operates; identifies the procedures undertaken and the decisions made in developing the program; and describes how the program operates, the services it delivers, and the functions it carries out. By documenting the program's development and operation, process evaluation assesses reasons for successful or unsuccessful performance and provides information for potential program improvement or replication.
