Description

Download Presentation Slides

The Values-Engaged, Educative (VEE) evaluation approach, developed with National Science Foundation (NSF)-EHR support, defines high quality STEM educational programming as that which effectively incorporates cutting-edge scientific content, strong pedagogy, and sensitivity to diversity and equity issues. Extensive field tests in STEM education program contexts, commitments aligned with the NSF, the desire to use appropriate methodologies, and attention to the social-relational dimensions of evaluation, make VEE a good fit for evaluations of Math and Science Partnership programs. In this webinar, we will introduce the VEE approach and point viewers to further resources and materials about this approach. Drawing from practical examples of evaluations of MSP projects and other NSF programs, we will discuss strategies for evaluating STEM program implementation, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability with this approach.
