Stakeholder Goals and Objectives
Tip: Collect information about the goals and objectives of participants as well as project/program staff and funders and then determine the degree of overlap of goals among different stakeholders.
Tip: Collect data on participant goals and expectations at enrollment so that the goals and expectations of dropouts and non-completers are also collected.
Tip: If there is not a great degree of overlap in goals across stakeholder groups, make clear whose goals are and are not to be included in the evaluation and why.
