Good Assessment = Success: Developing Assessment Based Outreach

Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Are our outreach activities successful? Do they meet our basic goals? Good assessment helps highlight what works and what needs improvement, provides good data for funders, and keeps us from repeating the same mistakes. Join Barbara Bogue and Rose Marra, co-founders of the AWE (Assessing Women and Men in Engineering) Project, to learn more about developing assessment based programs, gain access to high quality pre-college survey instruments (that get at more than participant satisfaction), and ask questions. Barbara Bogue is an Associate Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics and Women in Engineering and a consultant for the National Girls Collaborative Project. Rose M. Marra is an Associate Professor of Learning Technologies and Co-PI of the NGCP. Dr. Marra and Ms. Bogue founded and run the NSF-sponsored AWE Project (, are recipients of WEPAN¹s Betty Vetter Research Award and have been conducting assessment and evaluation workshops for over 10 years.
