What Constitutes Strong Evidence of Program Effectiveness

The Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) was developed to assess the effectiveness of federal programs and help inform management actions, budget requests, and legislative proposals directed at achieving results. The PART examines various factors that contribute to the effectiveness of a program and requires that conclusions be explained and substantiated with evidence. The PART assesses if and how program evaluation is used to inform program planning and to corroborate program results.
