A strong evaluation plan that is well integrated into your grant proposal will strengthen your submission and maybe even give you a competitive edge. In this webinar, long-time members of the ATE community will provide insights on ways to enhance your proposal and avoid common pitfalls with regard to evaluation. We’ll walk through EvaluATE’s Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals, which provides detailed guidance on how to address evaluation throughout a proposal—from the project summary to the budget justification. We’ll share examples of how to incorporate results from previous evaluations in the Results of Prior NSF Support section, present a coherent evaluation plan linked to project activities and goals, and budget for an external evaluation (among other things). We’ll have plenty of time for questions and discussion with our knowledgeable and experienced panel.
2 sessions are being offered:
Wednesday, August 20 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM
Tuesday, August 26 from 3:00 to 4:30 PM

FAS4ATE presents Connecting Logic Models to Data You Can Use: To make the most use of a logic model, it must be connected to an evaluation plan that plots out what information you need to collect at what times to provide the most benefit for our project. In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate a process to help you do that using examples from ATE projects. This webinar is the second in the series for the FAS4ATE project, which is connecting PIs, evaluators, and international experts to design evaluative activities to effectively serve both day-to-day management and end-of-project needs for the ATE community. This project will culminate in a one day workshop at the Omni Shoreham in Washington, DC on October 21 (prior to the ATE PI Conference).

The FAS4ATE project is seeking PIs, Co-PIs and evaluators to help us develop a system to give you access to real time data for decision making in your ATE work. At a one day workshop you will work with evaluation and formative assessment experts from the US and Australia to understand the key evaluation questions and data needs for your individual project. FAS4ATE will use that information to build an overarching framework for and ATE-wide data system. We hope you’ll join us in collaborating to build a tool that can make evaluation more accessible and effective for the ATE community!
Wednesday, October 22, 2014 1:00 to 4:00 PM
In this session, experienced ATE evaluators and project/center leaders will describe their evaluations, share lessons learned, and discuss how they use their evaluation results to improve their work. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to apply the concepts and strategies presented to their own work and take away practical tools and guidance.
