Evaluation Core

The Evaluation Core has the  primary responsibility for collaboratively designing and conducting all evaluation activities, including conducting formative evaluation to provide feedback to refine intervention components, monitoring implementation, ongoing performance reporting for program improvement, and assessing structures, outcomes and impacts.

 

  1. Establish BUILD and NRMN program-wide goals and agreed upon indicators of successful biomedical researchers at multiple career stages and collaboratively decide on the final methodology for establishing and implementing a standardized evaluation approach and data collection protocols.
  2. Develop and implement systems and training needed to build capacity and ensure standardized evaluation protocols and harmonized data collection procedures across BUILD and NRMN.
  3. Design and conduct longitudinal evaluation using mixed-methods to assess implementing processes, outcomes, and impact of the BUILD program on enhancing biomedical workforce diversity.
  4. Design and conduct longitudinal evaluation using mixed-methods to assess changes and impact of the NRMN program on biomedical career development.
  5. Provide timely and periodic reporting to the Diversity Program Consortium, BUILD institutions and NRMN network.
