The Interior Health evaluation team identified the need to formalize evaluability assessment as part of their evaluation process. Evaluability assessment provides a mechanism to determine evaluability and provides a formalized deliverable that would facilitate discussions with stakeholders on the steps necessary to prepare the project for program evaluation. In this paper, I have provided the necessary background information on evaluability assessment and customized a formal yet flexible evaluability assessment process and tool for use by Interior Health. This process and tool will help the evaluation team to assess if an evaluation would be appropriate, practical, and useful.
