The requirements of your evaluation most often determine its duration. For evaluations that are designed to meet funding requirements, the funder and the duration of the grant generally determine the evaluation timeline.

For example, if you are awarded a 3-year grant to implement a teen violence prevention program in your local school district, you might need to measure and report outcomes to the funder at the end of the 3 years. In the interim, the funder could require that you document certain components of the program, and/or measure short-term or intermediate outcomes and submit the findings in quarterly or semiannual reports. In this situation, the evaluation as funded is expected to terminate at the end of the grant period and will continue only if you choose to and have resources to support ongoing evaluation efforts.
