Learn About The Role Evaluation Plays in Grants

I do work as an evaluator on several National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technology Education (ATE) grants. (learn a little more about the ATE programs)

I have been asked to share some of my experiences in an upcoming webinar about NSF ATE Evaluations. Here are the details in case you are interested in attending.

Webinar: Making Evaluation Integral to Your ATE Proposal


In this free, 90-minute webinar, participants will learn how to
make evaluation a strong component of their ATE proposals. Staff
from the ATE Evaluation Resource Center will provide guidance
about how to focus an ATE evaluation, develop a plan for data
collection and analysis, describe the evaluation in a proposal, and work with
an evaluator.

The webinar will feature NSF-ATE program officer Linnea Fletcher,
who will provide NSF’s perspective on these topics. Gordon
Snyder and Karl Kapp, a veteran ATE PI-evaluator team, will also
join the webinar, talking about their successful experiences working
together on funded ATE proposals.

Register here.

Participants will leave the webinar with the knowledge and tools
and they need to
  • Define the purpose of the evaluation and how the results will be
  • Write clear and useful evaluation questions tied to the
    project’s intended outcomes
  • Be responsive to NSF’s expectations for ATE evaluations
  • Systematically identify question- and context-appropriate data
    collection methods and information sources
  • Locate data collection instruments
  • Create a feedback loop so project staff can use evaluation
    results to improve their efforts
  • Find competent evaluators and budget for their work
