There are two types of program evaluations, formative and summative evaluation (Cheyenne, Wyo .1993). Formative evaluation will include assessment of needs and evaluability. It will also include structured conceptualization and evaluation of process and implementation. Summative evaluation will include evaluation of outcome and impact. It will also include analysis of secondary data, meta-analysis, its cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit
