Program & Policy Evaluation

NITE’s program evaluation unit is involved with assessing educational and societal programs. The unit performs a wide variety of evaluation research projects, including formative evaluation, summative evaluation, process evaluation and outcome evaluation, depending on the client’s specifications of the client and the program requirements. During a typical evaluation project the unit’s staff reviews the background material of the program and relevant literature, constructs an evaluation program, defines the program’s impact theory with its operators and other stake-holders, develops the questionnaires and necessary evaluation tools, collects and analyses data on the project, and produces summary reports. The members of the unit are experienced researchers in the fields of measurement and assessment, and make use of all of NITE’s auxiliary departments: management, finance, IT, graphic design, press, etc.).
