To maintain the highest level of quality, the SCATE Center undergoes periodic evaluation to provide qualitative and quantitative data on the effectiveness of the program, areas for improvement, and constant evaluation for the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Evaluation of the SCATE Center and Mentor-Connect project is performed by David Hata. The evaluator is responsible for assessing the progress toward goals listed in proposal and strategic plan as well as evaluating evidence of broader impacts for the project. The evaluator also accesses the effectiveness of diversity, workforce, and outreach efforts and then finally determines if changes or adjustments are required within the project to achieve the stated goals and objectives. See below reports and/or dissemination material that has been created based on analysis from the evaluator and personnel.
NVCs are groups of advisors that work with grantees and NSF to help them achieve their goals and objectives. They assess the plans and progress of the project and report to NSF and the project leadership. Committee members also provide advice to the project staff and may serve as advocates for effective projects. See the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program’s NVC Handbook.
