A strong evaluation plan will give your proposal a competitive edge. In this webinar, we’ll explain the six essential elements of an effective evaluation plan and show you how to incorporate them into a proposal for the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program. We’ll also provide guidance on how to budget for an evaluation, locate a qualified evaluator, and use evaluative evidence to describe the results from prior NSF support (required if you’ve had previous NSF funding). Participants will receive an updated Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals and other resources to help prepare strong evaluation plans.

Abstract:

e · val · u · a · tion: determination of the value, nature, character, or quality of something or someone*

But what is program evaluation?

Why does the National Science Foundation (NSF) require that the projects they fund be evaluated? How much does it cost? Who can do it? What does a good evaluation plan look like? What will happen? What are you supposed to do with the results?

In this webinar, we’ll answer these and other common questions about program evaluation. This session is for individuals with limited experience with program evaluation, especially two-year college faculty and grants specialists who are planning on submitting proposals to NSF’s Advanced Technological Education program this fall.
