Event: MSP Evaluation Summit II: Using Evaluation Data to Communicate Findings

Oct 4, 2006
9:00 AM
Oct 5, 2006
2:00 PM

Radisson University Hotel
Minneapolis, MN

Sponsors: Consortium for Building Evaluation Capacity (Utah State University) and the Adding Value to the Mathematics and Science Partnerships Evaluations (University of Wisconsin-Madison) RETA projects.

Meeting Purpose: The purpose of this meeting is to provide an opportunity for NSF-funded MSP principal investigators, evaluators, researchers, project leadership, and graduate researchers to report findings from their work. Department of Education state-level MSP leaders are encouraged to attend. The first cohort of NSF MSPs is completing its fourth year, while other MSPs are completing third and second years. The evaluators of these MSPs have developed and implemented research designs, evaluated project implementation and outcomes, collected and sifted through evidence, and are drawing findings from their efforts. RETA researchers have been immersed in studying significant design, implementation, measurement, and evaluation questions. This summit meeting will provide an opportunity for MSP project leadership, evaluators, researchers, and STEM faculty to showcase their work and to engage in dialogue on key issues related to evaluating MSPs.

Keynote Speaker: Michael Quinn Patton (Union Institute) will start the meeting with keynote presentation about Evidence-Based Evaluation Findings Using Systems Change and Complexity Science Frameworks and Ways of Thinking.

Register online beginning Monday, June 6, 2006 - ending Friday, September 1, 2006.

Proposals presenting evidence-based MSP findings are invited. Proposal abstracts are due June 30, notifications go out July 28, and full papers are due September 1, 2006. A $300 honoraria and reimbursement for travel (with restrictions) will be provided to the lead author. Visit the URL below for details.
