What You Can Evaluate

An evaluation of a consumer report could have any of three major focal points:

  • Evaluating the Process. The process involves all the steps you took to get the results you wanted.
  • Evaluating Results. The results address whether you achieved your objectives, as well as what other, unexpected outcomes emerged.
  • Evaluating Cost-Effectiveness. Cost-effectiveness addresses whether you have used your resources as wisely as possible and whether there might be less expensive ways to achieve the same results.
