Evaluation Models Aligned to Research Types


Download Presentation Slides

The Common Guidelines for Educational Research and Development (IES/NSF, 2013) suggest that external feedback (peer review, expert panels, advisory boards, external evaluators) is appropriate for evaluating each of the six different research types: foundational research and development; early stage/exploratory; design and development; efficacy studies; effectiveness studies; and scale-up studies. However, there is little elaboration regarding which type of external feedback works best for a particular type of research, or how an external feedback model might be utilized for particular research types in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) projects. This webinar provides insights into the evaluation of educational research, in particular, participants will increase understanding of the types of evaluation questions that can facilitate communication with projects about how the evaluation of research looks different from impact evaluation.
