Many organizations and agencies, especially federal agencies, that award large grants to academic institutions require oversight by an external evaluation consultant. During an evaluation project, the E-2 evaluation team, led by Dr. April Edwards, Ph.D., assists project leadership and administration with developing, refining, implementing, and reporting on project outcomes. We prefer to be involved as early in the process as possible, and we will assist with developing the evaluation plan in the proposal development stage. We have served as external evaluation consultants for multiple National Science Foundation and the United States Department of Education programs.
All evaluation activities will include ongoing discussions with the project leadership to ensure engagement in the evaluation and open communication.
