Refers to the way information from an evaluationaffects the programme, policy, or project on which the evaluation is being conducted. Questions that seek to establish the utilization of evaluation may include asking whether progressive changes were made in a programme, project or policy as a consequence of the evaluation. There may also be need to establish whether an evaluation generated new understanding of or a modification of the beliefs about the general or specific aspects of the programme, project or policy.[1]
