Process and outcome evaluation are the first two common areas of focus for the empowerment evaluation approach. (Yuen/Terao, 2003) The characteristic of process evaluation is that they provide a quantitative description of how the program was carried out. Documenting and monitoring the planning, implementation, and interrelationship of the components of the proposed project are all focuses of the process evaluation. An example of a process evaluation would be a basketball coach for Hampden Sydney College recruited players for a total of 75 hours for its next season. Another example would be Hampden Sydney College collected 500 pairs of sneakers for charity. The characteristic of outcome evaluation is it evaluates the increase in a program’s effectiveness and it provides feedback on a program as well. The outcome evaluation provides better understanding to the three key evaluation questions: effectiveness of intervention strategies, ATOD use and family capacity, and replicability of the project. An example of an outcome evaluation is the coach of the Hampden Sydney basketball team recruited 23 outstanding players during her 11 consecutive years of coaching. Another example is the coach contacts her former players to conclude their success.
