An evaluation plan should address each subcomponent of the CSPD and, initially, address the most critical features of each. Evaluation should be viewed as cyclical in nature. That is, evaluation questions are generated, data are collected, data are analyzed and used to make decisions about the system, changes to the system are made based on the data, system changes are evaluated, and new evaluation questions are generated.
Quality Indicator 1: The evaluation plan for the CSPD includes processes and mechanisms to collect, store, and analyze data across all subcomponents.
Quality Indicator 2: The evaluation plan is implemented, continuously monitored, and revised as necessary based on multiple data sources.
