Evaluation of the Technology Workforce Development Grants Program. Report.
Webb, Roger P.; Lee, Peter
The enabling legislation required a review of the Technology Workforce Development Grants program by an external expert evaluation team on a biennial basis. This program was designed to increase the number of engineering and computer science graduates and the number of collaborations among higher education institutions and private companies. At the time of this initial review, the first grants had been in place for less than a year. The external evaluation team used information from a number of sources, including site visits, to evaluate the beginning of the grants program. The evaluation concluded that the program is well-conceived and well-administered. Results achieved in the short life of the program indicate that it is progressing well. The funding that has been provided so far appears to have been used wisely and with good early impact. Recommendations are made for program continuance and improvement, with emphasis on the criteria and metrics used for further evaluations. An appendix lists the external review materials. (SLD)
