They are a ready partner to connect research with a variety of organizations throughout North Carolina and across the United States to bring teachers the best available classroom content and professional development.
  • Evaluation, Assessment and Policy Connections (EvAP)
    EvAP is a unit within the School of Education. EvAP's mission is to build evaluation capacity and effectiveness of public, nonprofit , and private organizations to meet the challenges of developing and sustaining successful programs. EvAP can guide you through setting goals, determining outcomes, and identifying methods to measure programs, which enables them to use what they learn from evaluation to make informed decisions about future paths. EvAP specializes in training evaluators and conducting program evaluations.
