Worksheet: Evaluation Data Matrix Template

Posted on August 16, 2018 by  in Resources (, )

An evaluation plan should include a clear description of what data will be collected, from what sources and how, by whom, and when, as well as how the data will be analyzed. Placing this information in a matrix helps ensure that there is a viable plan for collecting all the data necessary to answer each evaluation question and that all collected data will serve a specific, intended purpose. The table below may be copied into another document, such as a grant proposal, and edited/ expanded as needed. An example is provided on the next page.

Newsletter: Survey Says Winter 2016

Posted on January 1, 2016 by , in Newsletter - ()

On the 2015 ATE survey, 65 of 230 principal investigators (28%) reported spending some portion of their annual budgets on research. Six of these projects were funded as targeted research. Among the other 59 projects, expenditures on research ranged from 1% to 65% with a median of 14%. With just six targeted research projects and less than a third of all ATE grantees engaging in research, there is immense opportunity within the ATE program to expand research on technician education.
