The Program Evaluation KnowledgeBase is an online resource aiding education professionals in understanding the basics of project evaluation in order to properly assess projects and programs. It is organized around three elements to assist educators with their program evaluation.

Guideline: Dr. W. Edwards Deming, a noted thinker and proponent of quality, spoke of a system comprised of seven parts - aim, customers, suppliers, input, process, output, and quality measurement.

Embracing a systems approach to programmatic evaluation enables a school's staff to focus their improvement efforts on those tasks that bring value to their work.
