Evaluation is a systematic determination of a subject's merit, worth and significance, using criteria governed by a set of standards.
It can assist an organization, program, project or any other intervention or initiative to assess any aim, realisable concept/proposal, or any alternative, to help in decision-making; or to ascertain the degree of achievement or value in regard to the aim and objectives and results of any such action that has been completed.
So evaluation can be formative, that is taking place during the development of a concept or proposal, project or organization, with the intention of improving the value or effectiveness of the proposal, project, or organisation.
The approach is on a commercial basis and the method is not intended for use in evaluating small samples.Evaluation is inherently a theoretically informed approach (whether explicitly or not), and consequently any particular definition of evaluation would have be tailored to its context – the theory, needs, purpose, and methodology of the evaluation process itself.
