Evaluations do not as a rule exhaust themselves in a simple comparison of targets and achievements, but are interested above and beyond that in recording as many as possible (ideally all) of the effects produced by a programme or intervention measure. Apart from the intended effects, it is above all a question of also recording the unintended effects, which can either assist the achievement of the aims or counteract it. It is only when the effects in their entirety have been recorded that the evaluators can see whether the positive effects of a programme outweigh the negative ones or vice versa.

On the contrary, sudden events and altered framework conditions not only call for course corrections, but also sometimes even make it necessary to call the intended aims of the programme themselves into question. With increasing age, in other words as the programme continues, the desired effects as regards achievement of the aims should come about increasingly, so that the programme – if it is designed to run for a limited period of time – can be brought to a conclusion. If a programme is designed to be sustainable, the intended effects should carry on after the end of the support period.
