ITEST Proposal Development – Research and Evaluation

Event Date: 
Thu, 04/15/2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

STELAR's ITEST Proposal Development Course is a free resource designed to guide novice NSF proposal writers through the process of developing a full proposal for the August 13 ITEST solicitation deadline.  Join STELAR on Thursday, April 15 for the next webinar in their series. 

This webinar will present information about research and evaluation designs for ITEST proposals. We will focus on designing a research study in your ITEST project that will look at indications of the impact of your intervention and also contribute Intellectual Merit. We will look at how to design an evaluation that will provide you with ongoing feedback on your work, as well as feedback on the overall success of the project. 

This session will be split into three parts: (1) Overview of the “High-Quality Research Design” section of the ITEST Solicitation; (2) Overview of the “Project Evaluation” section; (3) “Ask an Evaluator” interactive breakout groups where attendees can ask experienced ITEST evaluators their burning evaluation questions.
