Program Theory Evaluation

The program theory evaluation is a process which examines the overall success rate of a particular plan. This sort of evaluation is generally targeted towards programs which are related to some social problems. The evaluation measures the effectiveness of the program as well and also tries to locate the problems associated with it. This helps implement constructive changes which ensure a better curriculum which can be thus implemented.
