Evaluating the BK 21 Program. Research Brief
Seong, Somi; Popper, Steven W.; Goldman, Charles A.; Evans, David K.; Grammich, Clifford A.
RAND Corporation
The Brain Korea 21 program (BK21), an effort to improve Korean universities and research, has attracted a great deal of attention in Korea, producing the need to understand how well the program is meeting its goals. RAND developed a logic model for identifying program goals and dynamics, suggested quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods, and recommended a prototype database of evaluation measures. Because formal evaluation will take some time to accomplish, RAND also offered suggestions for ongoing program management and the development of the Korean university research sector. [This research brief describes work documented in "Brain Korea 21 Phase II: A New Evaluation Model," by Somi Seong, Steven W. Popper, Charles A. Goldman, and David K. Evans, with Clifford A. Grammich, 2008 (ED501762).]
