Evaluation & Research

The STEM Evaluation Program is a field leader in systems-based evaluation of STEM education initiatives. We aim to contribute to the national dialogue on evidence-based education by contributing to large-scale grant-funded evaluation initiatives. Our team embraces interdisciplinary, collaborative, and systems-based approaches to evaluation. As an active part of the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning, we are dedicated to training early career researchers through postdocs, internships, and undergraduate work-study opportunities.

Program Goals and Objectives:

1. Develop evaluation tools and methods in STEM education.

2. Produce data to inform college STEM education initiatives.

3. Foster a culture of evaluation and evidence-based teaching at Yale and in the Summer Institute community.

4. Create technical and collaborative infrastructures to support STEM education evaluation projects in the Yale and Summer Institute communities
