These slides were presented at the 2005 PI ADVANCE meeting in Panel 2. The presentation covers the metrics that people first agreed upon in regards to increasing women in STEM, data that was collected using these metrics, and the toolkit that was developed.
This document is a proposed method for compiling information at each ADVANCE institution. It was compiled by New Mexico State University’s ADVANCE program for the 2005 PI meeting in Panel 2. “The standardization recommended in this toolkit offers potential benefits in terms of cross-institutional comparisons. A brief history of the evolution of the indicators is presented in Appendix 1.”
This presentation is about the kinds of information that can be collected to compare ADVANCE programs and their growth. Examples include space allocation, attrition analysis, and salary equity analysis.
A list of the core variables with the number of sites with survey questions is listed in this document. Some examples of core variables include demographics, sexual harassment, and satisfaction. This document was presented at the 2006 PI Meeting.
The original NSF ADVANCE: IT proposal included a plan to perform in-depth interviews with 32 women faculty, conducted at the beginning of the grant period, to provide a baseline from which program evaluation will emanate. Follow-up interviews with the same women occurred in the last year of the grant. This activity was implemented immediately upon creation of WISELI, with some changes to the original...
This is the second of two “toolkits” developed to provide ADVANCE: Institutional Transformation (ADVANCE: IT) awardees with guidance on program evaluation. This toolkit includes information about:
Evaluation practices at ADVANCE institutions.
Basics of program evaluation
Presenting evaluation findings
Disseminating program evaluation findings
Glossary of evaluation terminology
“ADVANCE Institutional Transformation (ADVANCE: IT) funded programs are required annually to report data related to progress toward the goals of the program. The methods and procedures outlined in this toolkit will help you to meet the NSF reporting requirement. The appendix tables and charts can be used as templates for preparing your own tables.”
This mailing list is for the use of the ADVANCE PIs, Directors, and Program Developers. It will enable us to share best practices, helpful web sites and programs, discuss common goals, etc. You can subscribe here.
The methods and procedures outlined in these toolkits will help you to meet the NSF reporting requirements and conduct effective program evaluations. Toolkits are available here.
