  • Test the plausibility of the programme theory by reviewing and collating relevant social science research and theories
  • Assess whether a programme was implemented as intended
  • Assess whether a programme benefited those who received it
  • Assess whether those who received the programme are better off than those who did not and whether the programme caused this improvement.
