This template was created by EvaluATE (evalu-ate.org). It is based on the National Science Foundation’s guidelines for preparing biographical sketches for senior project personnel. The information about what evaluators should include in Products and Synergistic Activities sections are EvaluATE’s suggestions, not NSF requirements. The biographical sketch must not exceed two pages.

PRODUCTS

(List up to ten products that demonstrate your experience and competence in evaluation and knowledge of the proposed project’s discipline. Examples may include publications, reports, and evaluation tools. All products must be citable and accessible. Include full reference information, including URL, if available).

Examples may include ongoing or completed evaluations; development or adaptation of evaluation tools; leadership roles in the evaluation field; and invited lectures, presentations, or workshops on evaluation.
