Assessing the Governance and Management of Global and Regional Partnership Programs (GRPPs)

Governance is both a means and an end; both how and whether a program achieves its objectives are important. GRPPs also employ a diverse array of governance models associated with the history and culture of each program along a continuum from pure shareholder models (in which membership on the governing body is restricted to financial and other contributors) to more inclusive stakeholder models (in which membership also includes non-contributors). Therefore, this paper suggests that the performance of the governing bodies and management units in their functions should be measured against certain good governance principles such as legitimacy, efficiency, accountability, responsibility, transparency and fairness. The presentation will provide a framework, good practice guidelines, tools and examples for doing so, based on a survey of over 60 GRPP evaluations

Addressing the Challenges of Systems Change Evaluation: Tools for Assessment

Existing definitions and models of systems change are reviewed, and practical challenges of systems change evaluation will be discussed. Meta-evaluation information will be used to identify the kinds of changes that occur when systems change efforts have been successful.Finally, efforts to assess within the context of ongoing systems change evaluation projects are discussed, and the use of a new assessment tool is introduced. Information from the fields of developmental disabilities, education, and substance abuse will be used as examples #ResearchonEvaluation #Systems #2009Conference #SystemsinEvaluation #Evaluation2009 #TheoriesofEvaluation #Change #efforts #HowTo #evaluating

Eval12 Session 224: Evaluating College Access Programs in Engineering

"The Evolution of Responsive Education Program Evaluation at the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals" 26th Annual Conference of the American Evaluation Association Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA Session Abstract: The Iowa State University Research Institute for Studies in Education (RISE) has managed the evaluation of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals (CBiRC) pre-college education programs for the center’s four project years. A longitudinal study of the CBiRC Research Experience for Teachers (RET) highlights the evolution of the overall evaluation design, where the essential feature of the approach is responsiveness to key issues or methodological problems developed throughout the maturation of this professional development program for high school teachers. The continual adaptation of the evaluation’s goals and data collection for the RET emphasizes the value of a highly integrated, yet flexible, evaluation framework, where the evaluation rigorously generates and seeks to answer basic research hypotheses about the program’s components. Research-based measures of programmatic success have stimulated continued innovation in the design features of both the evaluation and the education program
