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.
