Download: Essential ATE Evaluation Tasks final
This resource identifies and defines the essential tasks involved in planning and conducting an evaluation of a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) project. This delineation of evaluation tasks serves as a foundation for EvaluATE’s evaluation-capacity-strengthening activities within the ATE program. The tasks convey what needs to be done in evaluation and, in most cases, why. They do not include details about how the work should be done. (EvaluATE provides guidance on how to do
the tasks through its resources and activities.)
