Framework for Evaluation of Equity Initiatives
Bexley, Emmaline; Harris, Kerri-Lee; James, Richard
Group of Eight (NJ1)
The Framework for Evaluation of Equity Initiatives has been prepared to support the Go8 Equity Strategy. Its purpose is to assist Group of Eight (Go8) universities to evaluate the effectiveness of their equity initiatives and interventions in the context of federal policies and the distinctive missions and responsibilities of the individual Go8 institutions. The framework provides an exploration of potential methods for evaluating a range of equity programs, noting some of the methodological complexities involved. There is an emphasis on looking beyond access and participation to ensuring academic achievement and outcomes. The Framework for Evaluation of Equity Initiatives is necessarily an evolving document that will be enhanced over time based on experience across the Go8 universities. The present document is a starting point for creating evidence-based approaches to practice. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
