Appraisal Assessment Evaluation

Project appraisal is a generic term that refers to the process of assessing, in a structured way, the case for proceeding with a project or proposal. In short, project appraisal is the effort of calculating a project's viability.

The terms assessment and evaluation are often used interchangeably. Assessment provides evidence that things are working or not whereas Evaluation may be defined as "the systematic investigation of the merit or worth of an object" and is often used in the context of "what value has been added through this project, and how do you know?" Project evaluation is often used to demonstrate accountability - e.g. have the project goals been met?

Evaluation is a methodological area that is closely related to, but distinguishable from more traditional social research. Evaluation utilizes many of the same methodologies used in traditional social research, but because evaluation takes place within a political and organizational context, it requires group skills, management ability, political dexterity, sensitivity to multiple stakeholders and other skills that social research in general does not rely on as much.
