Evaluation Center

About the Evaluation Center

Welcome to the Evaluation Center at the University of Kentucky College of Education! The Evaluation Center operates as an independent evaluation resource for the college, university, and state.  Despite its independent status, the Evaluation Center benefits from being able to consult with the experts in the College of Education regarding quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methodologies.

The Evaluation Center’s mission is to provide collaborative mixed-methods evaluation services which gather solid data, improve data utilization, increase knowledge, enhance decision-making, and strengthen policy development for education and human service organizations.

In addition, the Evaluation Center incorporates a multi-disciplinary advisory panel to guide practices.  The Center follows American Evaluation Associations’ ethical guidelines for evaluation services, which include systematic inquiry, competence, integrity, honesty, respect for people, and responsibility for general and public welfare.
