Submitted by Patrice Scott

Several team members from the College of Education's Office of Educational Innovation and Evaluation, or OEIE, presented at the American Evaluation Association's 2016 National Evaluation Conference, Oct. 24-29, in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The conference theme was "Evaluation + Design" and explored the intersection of design and evaluation related to designing programs, evaluations and information. More than 3,500 evaluation professionals attended the conference and nearly 1,000 more participated online.

Cindy Shuman, acting director of the Office of Educational Innovation and Evaluation, led a roundtable, "Designing the Team: What have we learned about creating an effective environment for evaluation professionals?"

Valerie York and Allison Teeter, evaluators; Katie Allen, project development specialist; and LeAnn Brosius, evaluation projects coordinator, presented "Logic Model Design and Use" during the poster session and "Teen Focus Group Design and Implementation" as a skill-building workshop.

The Office of Educational Innovation and Evaluation was established by the College of Education in 2000 and is a full-service evaluation center that provides services for a broad range of clientele in educational institutions, governmental agencies and other organizations.

Professional staff within the office have extensive expertise in program evaluation design, project management, instrument development, strategic planning and program assessment and evaluation.
