Webinar For Evaluators: Partnership Assessment Tool

Looking to better measure your clients’ partnerships?  Start by helping refine our partnership assessment tool!

The Rucks Group and the NSF ATE Working Partners Research Project team are co-developing a rubric intended to better measure the depth, breadth, and impact of industry partnerships on ATE projects and centers. After soliciting and integrating feedback from educators and PIs, we are turning to the evaluation community to gather feedback from another perspective.

We invite you to join us for a one-hour webinar on Wednesday February 26th at 2 pm EST to provide your expert feedback regarding this tool.  

  • If you are interested in participating:
    • – Prior to the webinar, the partnership assessment tool, call agenda, and discussion questions will be emailed to participants a week before the call. 
    • – During the webinar, the assessment tool will be presented followed by a guided discussion. 
    • – At the conclusion of the webinar, we will ask that you complete a short survey indicating your initial thoughts and suggestions for rubric improvement. 

Also, the opportunity to take part in a pilot study will also be presented during the call, which will provide deeper feedback on the tool.
