The evaluation planning stage also requires the identification of appropriate data sources. Depending on your targeted outcomes, data sources may include:

  • Individuals participating in your program, or others who can provide secondary reports on those individuals (teachers, parents, spouses),
  • Staff involved in program implementation,
  • Documentation generated by your program, both administrative and operational (e.g., program records, operations handbooks, policies and procedures, training materials, proposals, past evaluation plans or reports, budgets, organization charts, memoranda), and
  • Archival (existing) databases and documents; examples include school records, State records, police reports, national datasets, or records from your own agency.
