Term2.png INTENDED USES
Evaluation findings and recommendations can be put to many uses. This may include programme improvement, making judgment of merit and worth , generating lessons learned about effectiveness, assuring accountability, testing programme theory and building organization capacity. The concept of intended use moves from a general idea of doing a useful evaluation to a specific and concrete focus on the priorities of intended use for a particular evaluation's primary intended users. The goal of the evaluation then becomes intended uses by intended users.[1]
