Watch the video
The presentation will describe the common metrics and methodologies developed by to measure the effectiveness of NSF Advanced Technological Education (ATE) center and project activities. The central goals of NSF ATE are to produce more science and engineering technicians to meet workforce demands and to improve the technical skills and general educational preparation of these technicians and their educators. Previous to this study, there were no generally accepted means of measuring the effectiveness of ATE activities; thus, the results of this study should allow NSF to better understand variations in success of its ATE grantees and to apply an objective effectiveness measurement strategy to ATE and similar programs in the future.
